Rainbows


After I made my plans to photograph my friend Heather with the red umbrella (yesterday's post), the rainy Saturday I've mentioned before arrived and umbrella's were suddenly everywhere.  I pulled into a restaurant parking lot to pop out for some take-out lunch but as often happens, I was engrossed in a story on the radio so I sat there for a while before making a dash for the restaurant.  Suddenly I spotted this young girl with her rainbow umbrella and her rainbow socks.  I jumped out of the car with my camera in hand so I could catch the scene.  As you can see, the rain was coming down at a good pace so I jumped right back in the car before I and my camera got drenched.  It's not the best photo but, I think the combination of umbrella and socks is just irresistible.

Irresistible indeed!
And most photographers know the feeling of a picture they did not take for a reason or another... it is still in their mind at this day. :-)

Cool! It reminds me of a series of shots a friend of mine took in Tokyo.

Good job and quick thinking! You got it perfectly. Fun and funky!

Oh, I totally agree. Even her skirt and jacket add to the picture! Even though nothing matches I think it's a wonderful combination.
