The sky is falling

So, I started the day out in full knowledge that it might rain, but I had plans to go catch up on some museum exhibits before they closed (Cy Twombly at Tate Modern is pretty wonderful if anyone is in the London area) and figured I would be inside while it rained. With this thought in mind, I decided to wear heels (a rarity on my part, mostly because I cannot stand the aches and I am not nearly dainty enough to wear them regularly).

I forgot about the forecast while being overpowered by Mr Twombly's masterful giant canvases within...but when I left the sky looked like this:



And well, who in their right mind wears heels to a museum exhibit? On a day forecasting showers? Silly old me. But I came prepared.

And so, my day ended with me looking like this (just before running into wagamama to avoid the rain):

The moral of the story being: when the sky opens, it's best that I have both feet firmly on the ground.

thanks! it's a collaborative effort: i frame the shot and then hand the camera off. my cameraman is the most patient of fellows, since i tend to have something specific in mind. he shoots away and then i edit the photos. voila!

Love your outfit! The heels are wonderful, but I completely understand the aches thing.

At least you were prepared for the rain - I was completely drenched the other day in a downpour!
