Great, the first day of a new project, and it rains. Bummer.
Not that taking photos in the rain is a bummer, its just hard to juggle coffee, and an umbrella, and a camera. But, on the first day, I soldiered through, because while I probably will take some iPhone shots, I didn’t want to start off on the phone foot.
So, in order to get myself prepared, I amped up my ISO to 1000. I figured with rain, and mist, and what not, a little grit would be a good thing. I tested a few settings in front of my house, and off I went.
This photo was not necessarily the best photo I took, technically, and I hemmed and hawed about what to post. The technically good one, or the one that strikes me emotionally, because it tells a story. I went with the story – the rain, the hesitation at the food cart, the steam . . . this is the story of today.
