Unlikely Rainbows
Rainbow in bathroom. Seen by Bee

Those big rainbows in the sky after a sun shower are actually pretty rare sightings. But smaller, everyday rainbows can be found in the most unlikely places. If only we pause to look. And, thanks to frequency illusion (technically known as the Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon) once you see one the chances of seeing them more often increases. Perhaps we can simulate the frequency illusion by looking at this collection below. Please do send over any more you find so we can grow this collection: hello@wearejustlooking.org.
