Judging by the forecast when I left for work, I thought it would be a good day to bring the ol’ D200 with me and see if I could get a shot of something rainy. The weather sealing on this beast has long since bit the dust, so I had to be careful to not get it too wet, but I figured if I stood in a bus stop and watched for passers-by, I might end up with a photo-op. My goal was to catch someone who was unprepared for the rain, and while I can’t say for sure if this lady intended to be out biking in weather like this, I do know I would have wished for a warmer overcoat if I were her.
As I was shooting this photo in particular, I was a bit frustrated that a car decided to come between me and the subject (how rude of them! Didn’t they know I was trying to get a picture for my weekly photo blog?) but as I was looking through my shots I decided I rather liked the foreground element the vehicle added. It lends a sense of depth and motion to the picture, and even though I would not have planned it like this I am quite pleased with how it turned out.
