Drip

Wet Day 1

I'm scraping the bottom of the photo barrel. Yesterday was gray and wet, not promising for the image collector. So after my usual Saturday visit to the office I drove aimlessly around downtown, 50 mm lens on the camera, using a technique I cribbed from Nathalie of Avignon In Photos. Turn off your windshield wipers, find something bright and play with the focus. Works every time.

Tricky for a cyclist like me to use this technique. But I bought a little plastic thingy to use instead of a tripod so that I can shoot from the bike.

Great approach to a rainy day.

I love these shots! I really can feel that cold dampness.

Yeah, I need to try this. It's great! I wonder if it works with snow too.

The old archive booster . . .

There's something very appealing about smudgy, blurred rainy day images, I like these a lot Bob, especially the last two where its still possible to read the neon signs!
