When The Rain Comes

Shot Of The Day: May 15, 2017

If the rain comes
They run and hide their heads
They might as well be dead

Backstory: New Yorkers brave the rain – living on the coast we are used to it. To get this shot I stuffed my D40x into a ‘Venterior Waterproof Case’ (a glorified ziploc with a snout for the lens). Even though I rubber banded the snout to the lens barrel on my 70mm there was some obvious \ unavoidable distortion which produced a soft focus. I kind of like it as it lends a psychedelic feel, as does Rain by The Beatles. — TAG
