“I love rain. I love the sound of it falling on an umbrella, each drop that hits the cloth a soothing sound. Everything is so fresh and clean. It always feels as if each drop is helping to wash away the hurt, the pain, the dirt that life leaves behind. As if the mere act of it falling can give life a rebirth, a second chance.” Brandi M. Polier

That’s What Friends are For

Be still sad heart and cease repining;

Behind the clouds the sun is shining,
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life a little rain must fall,

At the end of every quarter the Sifter will highlight the top 25 ‘Pictures of the Day‘, culminating in an epic Top 100 at the end of the year (check out the ‘Top 100 POTDs for 2012‘).

It’s hard to believe we’re already half way through 2013. Below you will find the second installment of this quarterly compilation. All credit goes to the individual photographers and their inspiring visions of our beautiful planet.

*Please note the photographs themselves were not necessarily taken in 2013, they just happened to be featured as a POTD on TwistedSifter. The pictures are also listed in reverse chronological order. There is no ranking amongst the photos 🙂

A Photo A Day … June 28 2013

A Mixed Bag

Anyway, I decided to have a go at a project that I had been thinking about doing for a while. I showed the photo to my daughter and she said “yes you’ve shown me before” so I pointed to the corner of the room. I know I have to do work with it to remove the reflections. I’ll get there though.

The Artful Pose

A few pictures from The Artful Pose, Early Studio Photography, c 1855-1940.  All the photographs are by Shapoor Bhedwar to the best of my knowledge.

There are girls in short tunics worn with sarees (looking like early versions of Hakoba) with Grecian hairstyles in the picture titled The Flower Girl.

The picture with the holy man (The Mystic Sign/The Yogi – The Lesson) suggests Hindu women in short cholis and sarees.

One photograph features a Maharashtrian family, the women in traditional nine-yard saris with contrasting blouses.

There is a young girl in a drape and without a blouse in the picture titled Rose Bud.

There is the photographer himself, dressed like a saheb (it gets my approval, I love flat caps:)).  His mother is in a Parsi style sari, the children in clothing common for young Parsi children at the time (including little…
