Rain (2006 Version)

    Newer Older

    Rain, rain on my face. It hasn't stopped raining for days.

    This is part of my first experiment in photographing rain. I'm really happy with the way that this one turned out. I kind of cheated a little bit though - right above where this picture cuts off is a gutter for our roof - it was overflowing with water. It was raining really hard.

    This photo was taken from the safety (and dryness!) of my front porch.

    Picture #DSC04732

    (UPDATE: There is a "tribute" version of this photo, taken with my Nikon D60 DSLR. See it on the other side of this link!)

I might not be able to compensate you financially as I am just starting out and do not even have sufficient amount to promote my music or have them professionally
