Caught in the Rain

Trying out my new camera raincoat. No truly. I love taking pictures in the rain but how do you juggle an umbrella and camera. Simple. You don't. Unless you have three hands. You buy a waterproof cover for your camera. Watch this space for lots of rain pictures.
Although we'll probably have weeks of sunshine now that I'm prepared.

Well, if this is one of your efforts: very nice!

It usually rains here too, but not this winter. Buildings are collapsing under heavy loads of snow.

Rain can be beautiful as it is in your photos.

i love pictures of people sharing an umbrella. there's just something so sweet about it. and i hope you're right about the sunshine. it would be nice for it to be bright and sunny for a change.

The rain clear the air, so I guess you will get some very sharp shots. Enjoy the weekend!

Tinsie said...

Nice shot! Although I hope you don't get too many chances to use the waterproof cover, as I hate rain!

I hate umbrellas, so I generally don't use them. Do they make iphone rain-coats? ;)

Gorgeous shot! What kind of cover did you buy? I need something for my Nikon D5000.

Were they singing in the rain, just singing in the rain?

Luis Gomez said...

Beautiful shot. Love rainy shots in the streets.

This is a wonderful shot. What a great idea, a raincoat for the camera. Am I mistaken or was this shot taken near Covent Garden? For some reason the scene looks very familiar to me.

We were out yesterday and Barry said, 'I should have brought the camera rain cover' but we just had one short snow hiccough and that was that - fortunately! Looking forward to more 'wet' shots ;-)

This is a beautiful shot Mo, it has a great 'old world' feel to it! Long live your rain cover :o)

I don't use brollies.

I worry about getting the camera wet but don't do much to protect it except to carry it under my coat when I'm not using it.

This is a lovely shot.

Love this shot. Am intrigued by your waterproof cover. Must look out for one of those. A couple of days ago the sea was incredibly high and I put my camera away before fo the spray. Now that would have been useful.

You should send this in to the card makers at Hallmark. This looks like a card cover....

Gillian said...

you could always buy one of those extra large umbrella hats. very trendy and it would keep your cam and lenses dry.
