Raining in Orchard Road

I was at Takashimaya, Orchard Road earlier this afternoon after meeting my cousin. It was raining heavily. I decided to shoot while my wife and daughter were sitting inside to rest their legs after few hours of walking earlier. I borrowed my wife umbrella and started walking to shoot some pictures. Umbrella in one hand and my Olympus PEN E-P3 with 12mm f/2 lens in another hand. The camera was a bit wet since the rain was too heavy for the umbrella to cover. I hope it didn’t do any damage to it.

This is one the shots I took and it’s probably the best I took this afternoon. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

    Lovely photo. When I carried my E-3 with me everywhere I used not to work about weather conditions. I still have it but generally shoot with my E-P2 now and am often afraid to let it get damp. The 12mm in the rain is wonderful – you’ve shown it off well. How iare he lens and the camera now? Still working?ReplyCancel

    Like the bag she is carrying… says ‘ColorWash’… the rain has done just that, washed all the colour out of the photograph. GreatReplyCancel

    With the constant rain that we are having, I have been thinking that capturing the rain would be pretty nice! And you have just shown how it can be done!ReplyCancel
