One Photo, One Street – Rain in the Morning

Photo Aug 18, 9 23 28 AM

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.

    I don't know – I really like this image. So moody and raw.

    L.O.V.E. this!!!! I think the mood and the "story telling" is absolutely wonderful.
