Autumn Rains

12/365 : Rain

Playing around in the rain this week.  It's rained all week and I've had to push myself to experiment with taking photos in the darkish damp - good preparation for winter I guess.  This picture was a bit of a happy accident, I was holding my handbag, umbrella and camera while trying to adjust the exposure while keeping everything dry.  The umbrella fell at the last minute, the camera refocused on the umbrella (now in the frame) and not the shops  in the background and I ended up with an artsy photo with some lovely bokeh! Plus I even managed to keep everything dry.

It's a good picture - very artsy indeed! The rain sucks. The cold I can handle but the rain just plain sucks. xx

What a lucky accident! It turned out great! I'm so jealous of your autumn weather, I'm dreading another Aussie summer.

Beautiful shot! I want some rain to play with, but the rainy season here in So. Cal. (if we get one) is January-Mrach.

I wish I could look at rainy days as practice for winter... my point&shoot doesn't have any manual options though, its only drawback. So: when am I supposed to take pictures?? Heh. This is a beautiful shot, so I think you're on the right track!
