WEEK 32


MAY 25TH- MAY 31ST

 

I was thinking about how I had very few photos of the rain and it occurred to me that it really hasn't rained that much since October-- we had a 100+ inches of snow, of course, but very little actual rain. But that was rectified this week with a couple of solid days of rain. So this week it's mostly about the rainy day (and night) shots.

I really like the light right after the storm too.  Of course it's easier to shoot post storm than in the middle of the storm.

 Sometimes I focus too much on a "dramatic" sky, with crazy clouds or an intense blue- but sometimes a solid gray sky sky can be quite impressive on it's own.


Grey Sky 


I'm a sucker for the effect of isolating one bit of color in a black and white shot-- I think it mostly works, though when the color really stands out in real life too. That was the case here - I didn't have to remove very much color--the day and the street was very monochrome and the purple truly did stand out.

The reflection of the wet streets at night are another nice rain side effect
