rainy day outside the parking lot mf.jpg

The rain still comes tumblin' down - day after day after day. Most of the state is in flood. People are
evacuating. The dams are overflowing ... and I have been stuck inside for about as long as I can take!
Went out to shop for a few things. The unloved looking parking area under K-Mart and Coles is a
gritty, film noir kinda place. It looks like there should be drug deals going on in the more
shadowy recesses. I felt like getting a gritty, grimy, seedy kinda picture for a change. :o)
