Warning – many rainy day shots coming up. Today is second day, and it was cold, miserable – and excellent shooting weather. I believe there’s one more day of deluge. And already I have four or five good images from mother natures amusement ride. I say that because the wind on the avenues must have been around 60 m.p.h. I was hoping to get a shot with maybe 8 umbrellas all blowing apart at the same time. I think I have one with 5 going at the same time. For me – this is great fun, and what will always get me out of my laboratory.
My greatest dream of all, is to have a tornado moving slowly down fifth avenue. Maybe it touches down around 59th street, and skips around until it gets to Grand Central Station. I was sent home from school in – maybe the second grade – and still remember how much fun it was holding on from one Bronx lamp post to the next so as not to get blown away. When I think back on it – it’s funny that parents weren’t called to come and get us. They just let us out and we somehow managed (most of us) to make it back home.
I may do this in sequence – first one umbrella, then two etc.
Near subway entrance, 3rd / 86th
Sorry – don’t know why I decided to do this one in sepia. Just works for me.
I have a few more that I like… Last time I put up a post with images of the day was when the Pope was in town. The current pope. Rain and the pope. What do they have in common.
