I made this on the streets of Hanover while looking into a vacant store. I wasn’t sure whether they were fixing it up or just storing stuff in it.
We had a hard rain. Apparently the outside drains were blocked so the water from the roof had nowhere to go but onto our covered porch on one side and onto the patio on the other side of our sunroom and then under the door into the Villa. You can see hail in the first picture and the water coming back up out of the drain in the fourth picture.

The question is, to whom does it matter? They would need lots of money to invest, but “invest” probably isn’t a good word in this case since it is unlikely that they would ever recover their money. It seems to be that it was nice in its time, but time, technology, and interests have moved on and left it like a beached whale.
When the sun peeked over the horizon and I was making my first cup of coffee I noticed this view out the window. The sun was reflecting on a neighbor’s window and made circular patterns so I grabbed a zoom lens and took this picture through our blinds. The lines, patterns, and colors caught my eye.
Later I stepped out on our porch to take the following pictures. It was drizzling and you can see the water drops on the Rhododendron.
