It started on a rainy day, literally coming down sideways, a great day to get some shots here in Yokosuka, Japan or so it seemed… I had recently purchased a great waterproof hat, waterproof jacket, waterproof pants, and waterproof shoes, almost all of it on sale and in anticipation for a day just like this. was prepared, again… so it seemed. Within an hour of my rain day outing, water was running down the inside of my glasses and down my neck from the inside the hat, my body was soaked to the core and my feet were wet and freezing. All my clothing had failed and even my weather sealed Canon 6D Mkii’s buttons suddenly stopped working.
This photo, Wet Walk, was selected for digital exposition in the Street Photography Exhibit at the Photosynthesis Art Center in Sofia, Bulgaria on August 1, 2019. It was taken back in December of 2013 on a trip to Florence, Italy when we lived in Naples.
I made a decision to take photos of Coronado, the city; sure I’d shoot the San Diego skyline, the bridge, and yes, sunsets, but I hoped to shoot more.
