Paige KahnIn Photos: A Drizzly Day In Kensington Gardens
Drizzly days in Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens don't deter visitors, who plod through puddles and struggle with umbrellas in the wind, while their dogs chase pigeons through the muddy pools formed on the ground. Bikers speed down the paths, spraying up more rainwater, and children... well, children don't mind the weather one bit.
Puddles become the dogs' new playground in the park. Spectators laugh as the canines' human companions try to recall the animals, now covered head-to-tail in mud.
Two human guides manage to round up the brazen pups, luring them with tennis balls at the end of their throwing sticks.
