What you see above is our rainy day antidote. It’s been raining for so long around here my wife Sarah bought this bunch of golden flowers to drive away the gloom. There’s an old shed in our back yard that served as an appropriate backdrop. It’s old water soaked boards provides a pretty good stand in for the current climate.
It’s raining hard and normally I couldn’t use a camera in this weather. However, the Olympus EM1 II is water resistant and in bad weather taking close up shots of people is easier because they’re too busy trying to stay dry.
On my way back to the subway, I came across this man/woman miserably huddled in a corner. I like the split screen nature of the resulting image.
Today’s early morning was a sodden soggy mess. The rain was pelting down so hard that even in bed with the windows closed tightly, the rain’s steady, strangely soothing hiss could easily be heard over the hum of the ceiling fan.
A lovely form of meditation could be achieved by just lying still and listening.
This was an easy picture to take. I saw this couple coming toward me from a long way off, happily tucked together under their large umbrella. Since I had plenty of time to set up my camera so all I had to do was wait until they passed me, swing behind them and take the shot. All it took was one.
