A Smile in the Rain by dannyst A Smile in the Rain by dannyst
I was standing in the middle of one of the heaviest rain Iíve shot on. As always, I was drenched from waist down and I kept my camera as close to the umbrella as possible. Iíve been waiting and shooting for about 30 minutes shooting here and there, but I havenít really seen anything peculiarÖ until I saw a woman from afar wrapped with a shawl walking gracefully towards my side of the street. She just stood out from all the others who were equally rushing to shelter. Itís one of those moments when I thought ďI HAVE to photograph her.Ē

I positioned myself in her path, crouched down, and took a series of shots until she walked past me. Later when I reviewed the shots, it was then that I realized she was smiling! She probably noticed me taking her picture. Or maybe she just really loved the summer rain. Maybe bothÖ Iím not sure. But I knew I had a keeper.

I absolutely adore this photograph. Everyone else is hunkered under umbrellas or running from the rain and she's strutting down the sidewalk like it's a catwalk, smile plastered across her face, and wearing sandals. Work it, honey!

I need to get the weather to photograph this. I'm too lazy. After I saw your work, I go to the streets in all weathers. This had to be beautiful, then at home when you looked at those pictures. I want to experience it too. Thank you, I go to photograph the streets, just raining.
