It was cold, it was wet, both rain and hail, and my three friends reminded me of:

"Three Girls in the rain" by Kuniyoshi

This photo was taken (Saturday April 8th) at Bristol's Brunel200 event to celebrate Isambard Kingdom Brunel's 200th birthday, performed by 200 saxophonists with Andy Sheppard.

in the rain

three women
having a giggle

chucking it down
ladies dancing
in the rain

These three haiku were taken from:
