Spent an afternoon walking around through center city in Philadelphia, amidst raindrops and blustery winds. I wasn’t feeling terribly inspired today, and the white skies above the buildings weren’t adding to my mood. But with the rain, a lot of wonderful colors appeared in rain jackets and umbrellas, and that got me inspired to play with creating abstract city scenes. I love that with digital we can see our results immediately and adjust until we get the effect we want! Of course, each photo is a one-of-a-kind, so if you don’t get it ‘right’ on the first try, you have to find another situation as the people just keep moving on by, but it’s a lot of fun to keep working the idea.
I walked over towards city hall next, and found three Asian girls doing selfies and group portraits around the waterworks display in the courtyard. I felt there was a photograph there, but they were all bunched together for some time. I gave up, and walked around looking for other photo opps, and suddenly the fountain shot up higher. That got the girls excited and they began to make more pictures, and I decided to try one more time. That’s when the one girl walked into the path and spread out her wrap.
Thanks for visiting, and please share!
Thanks, Wendy! I’m in the Rome airport and it’s raining cats and dogs! Does this mean that the weather is following me to Morocco?? yikes, I hope not. And you are right – the colors scream SPRING – I thought so too. I also though it was really interesting how her umbrella somehow got divided, like wings of a butterfly, in all the motion. Thanks for visiting and commenting!
I love these shots, Brenda! The colors in the dreary rain scream “Spring is on the way!” and i like the white black and gray tones in the second. Great seeing! (as always!)
Thank you Daniel.
