My Makeout Monday (in the rain!)

Once upon a time, in love with the idea of Makeout Monday and frustrated with the seeming limited supply of good kissing photos on Flickr, I put out a call for help to create a few good photos of my own. And luckily, my new friend Noah turned out to be a perfect model.



We went to North Central Park and walked around for a bit before it started raining (of course, right, it was sunny all day to start). So we hid in this little garden underneath a tree that at first provided surprisingly good shelter, then less effective when it became a downpour. We were both completely soaked by the time it stopped, but it was marvelous watching and hearing the rain fall on the water, the trees, the benches and ground. And when the sun came out again after, the park was incredibly gorgeous.



It started clouding over and looking like it might rain again after we took a few pictures, so we found scaffolding away from the park and escaped the twenty minute thunderstorm.

I do so love New York when it rains.


  1. I really like the 5th picture from the top.
    The position of you and the model is sweet- I feel as if I could just fall into the picture.
    I would like to follow your blog, but I don't see the button.

    Keep up the good work!
