Heavy Rain

Dad has a water-barrel system setup. The other night, it chucked it down with rain and as luck would have it, both I and my brother were at dad’s flat. Enough water came down that the overflow on the second barrel couldn’t cope, so dumped water out the side.

The perspex panes in the top are to let light through – there is two fish, a couple of mussels, and a few water snails in the green barrel. The fish like eating the mosquitoes who think that the barrel is a brilliant place to keep their larvae ;). Click on the image for the full-size version ๐Ÿ™‚

    I really like that last one, it has a sort of Polaroid quality to it with the warms o the colors and the bend around the focal point on the water. Very cool!

    Out of curiosity, what’s the water barrel system used for? It’s the first time I’ve seen something like that outside of a fish market where there it’s just to keep the fish alive until they are sold.

    Its used for storing water, to be used in the summer to water the plants dad has in window boxes around his (largeish) balcony ๐Ÿ™‚

    Kept getting mosquitoes in the tanks, and had to dump the water ๐Ÿ™
