    • Thanks, Glynn.

      The puddles can prove tiresome at times – but they still manage to reflect an exotic wealth of colour and beauty that I never tire of…

    • I might not have seen “a world in a grain of sand” but at least I found a palm tree in a puddle!

    • Thank you..

      I think the blueish tinge was partially due to traces of petrol and diesel rising up on the wet tarmac.

    Goodness me, you are turning into a high art photographer, that is beautiful.
