Just for Fun #4

Walkin' in the Rain

It rained pretty much the entire week last week. I was searching for things to shoot on my walk one day (I've pretty much covered all the interesting sights and no one was out in the rain), and saw a giant puddle. I liked how most of the detail was lost in the reflection and all you could really see was the silhouette of my umbrella.


I have a thing for shapes and lines, so this was a must-shoot when I saw it. I like how the haphazard blinds contradict the neatly ordered lines around them. I don't like the resulting moiré, but I guess there's not much I can do about that.

Like I said, I've already covered a lot of the interesting sights along my route (although there will always be things that grab my attention that I hadn't noticed before). As such, I'm starting to drift over into street photography a bit. A phone camera (especially when held like a phone and not a camera) makes a super stealthy street shooting machine. Not that I needed the stealth for the above photo, but it could lead to some interesting shots in the future.

  1. I love good street photography, so I definitely encourage more experimenting there. It's one of my greatest weaknesses, and I should probably try doing more of it myself...

    Btw, lol, THANK GOD that was your umbrella. I was like, WHY IS SIMON'S HEAD SO GEOMETRIC?! Mystery solved.
