Why I Created This Piece
Pieces that don’t require a lot of intention and are created in the moment usually end up being the best. I took this photo during a rainy evening drive, whilst at a red light. I’m a pluviophile, also known as a lover of rain. I cherish thunderstorms as I find peace of mind within the harsh and undisciplined weather. Everything from the scent of the rain, to the little droplets that blur out windows brings me joy. Toronto is a beautiful city when it rains. It’s almost as if it has its own melancholic persona when it rains. Toronto is a city full of lights, and I find the connection between a busy, hustling city and heavy rain as something that is very soothing. This connection makes you take the time out of a fast paced life to admire how beautiful Toronto’s flashing lights and scenery looks when it’s slowed down in a gloomy storm, thus why I took this photo to reminisce upon.
