This was not the day that my photographer friend and I had envisaged as the weather was not on our side, but for only a small window of this particular morning. We had to quickly adapt our plans and turned out that improvising on the spot produced the above photos.

From switching a trench coat for a raincoat and stilettos for gumboots, usually I'd be the last person to wear a pretty floral dress to ramble about in a rain-kissed park and shuffle up onto a fallen tree (I would definitely have fallen off if I had tried to test my balance by wearing high heels on this dilapidated tree...).

But sometimes I find that the most unexpected turn of events will produce the most surprising and pleasing results.
