Sometimes gloomy skies turn upside down and a beautiful rainbow appears. The below are two rainbows taken about a year apart from my bedroom window on Kingsland Ave. Lots of other Greenpointers shared the same rainbows on Instagram from all different angles. I love that. In addition to photos taken from the Greenpointers Flickr pool, I want to include photos from our Instagram buddies, too. Follow us on Instagram and tag us @greenpointers or tag the photo #greenpointers for any photos you would like to be shared on the website. Enjoy this gorgeous day!
