In Case of Rain

Hello Monday and hello rain. It's one of those mornings where you want to go back to sleep, awake to a long, lingering hot breakfast and curl up with a good book. The photography series In Case of Rain by Aline Smithson illustrates the simple childhood enjoyment of rainy days. Smithson began photographing "untouched childhood pursuits" like board games and records after realizing that today's generation has lost touch with the activities previous generations have enjoyed. This series is an effort to preserve these beautiful objects, which may someday be obsolete. Such a lovely series...see more goodness here. Enjoy your simple pleasures and rainy days.

these are beautiful. what a good idea, sometimes i mourn the generational loss of things like books and paper dolls--video games and computers are just not the same. . . .
