Shooting in the rain
It goes against every instinct of mine to go out and take photos in the rain. It’s literally something I have to force myself to do because I know how interesting streets and places with people can be when there is a bit of rain splashing about. I usually always come back with at least one or two keepers, and that makes me thankful I forced myself to do it. I’m hoping some day that my instincts flip around the other way and I no longer have to force myself!
Daily Photo – A Street Scene from Beijing
This is one of my favorite new areas of Beijing. Even though I've been to Beijing four times or so, it was my first time to this area. I was also lucky that it was raining, so it was even more interesting. This is a very old part of the city that was razed and widened during the Olympics. I actually have no idea what is original and what is rebuilt… although I have a sneaking suspicion that none of it is original.
