Week 22, Day 159, September 29, 2009, Rain Bounce


You may have to click on the image to see this one.  I went to a High School Cross Country Meet and it was cold and began to rain.  This is typical Cross Country Weather.  My older two children ran Cross Country, and I really enjoyed the meets.

As we were waiting for the runners to return, I noticed the rain drops bouncing off the umbrella next to me.  It was a great opportunity for another photo.

Many people were complaining about the weather, but I was finding the new subject of rain stimulating.  I'm enjoying new subjects to photograph.  I can hardly wait for snow.

Lessons Learned:
  • Keep looking, and looking some more.  There's millions of things around us to photograph that are interesting.
  • I used to take photos of the runners when my children were in cross country.  This time I found myself looking at the angles and the backgrounds.  I realized that I have come a long way in the past 5 years.  I cannot imagine what the next 5 years will bring.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/1250, Aperture f/2.8, ISO 400, Focal Length 70 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 113mm, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM, handheld.

That is the way to do it - look around. If you are in "the mood" you will see things that you did not see yesterday - and maybe not tomorrow. I enjoyed it.

That brings back memories! I love the movement in the photo, as well as the juxtaposition of the crisp umbrella on the soft background of our fair cross country (er golf) course :)
