This morning it was cloudy and overcast. The weather kept seeming like it was going to rain, but then it would sprinkle for a second and nothing else would happen. I really wanted to get out of the house and take some pictures, though, so I decided to try to capture a little bit of the quiet, gray mood.
It helped that there were almost no people in sight at World's Fair Park, and the flat light left even familiar things looking washed out and tired.
No children at the playgrounds:
Nobody at the patio tables or sitting on the benches:
The Butcher Shop patio was empty because it's gone out of business:
The Veterans Memorial was also deserted:
And for the most part I just walked around the park alone:
Eventually the clouds broke and the sun came out, but by then I was already gone.
