    • Thank you Maria!
      As you know, I love to photograph animals, but I love photographing ‘natural moments’ with people too 😀 This moment happened right as a big storm was hitting the area, so it was ‘controlled chaos’ before everyone started to madly scramble for cover 🙂 Wishing you a lovely weekend!

    • Thank you Randall 🙂
      We had a very ‘wet’ summer, and for many parts of the country, it brought a lot of headaches and tragedy :=( However, I wanted to share some light-hearted and (as you expressed it so nicely) mellow moments of the rainstorms as well. I’m glad the photo was able to portray it 😀

        • Thank you 🙂
          Here in the centre of Tokyo, it was more of a (sometimes) nuisance than anything else, but other areas were not as lucky 😦 I agree, summer rains are great in moderation. Fortunately, we’ll have some sun for a few days. Finally!

    • こんにちは!コメントありがとうございます。
      全国的に連日、雨ですが、お住まいの地域は大丈夫でしょうか。
      この一週間は毎日すっきりしない天気ですので体調も崩しやすいと思います。くれぐれもお身体ご自愛ください m(__)m

    • 大雨、大変ですね(><)
      北海道はあまり雨災害が無い印象でしたが(←私の知識不足かなあ?)この異常気象の中、もうどこでも起こり得るということですね・・・

  1. This is a fabulous photo, Takami! There are so many things I love about it. I love the plaid umbrella with the same pattern echoed in the plaid shirt on the man in the background. I love seeing the falling raindrops. And the light–the light is beautiful! Great highlights in this shot. It really brings forth the shimmering beauty of wet streets. And I love how you rendered this photo–excellent monochromatic work. Wishing you and your husband a very happy day, rain or shine! :))

    • Thank you always for your feedback! This was one of those moments (while snapping the photo) when I knew it *had* to be a B&W shot 🙂 This downpour happened during a trip to the zoo. When it started to rain, just about everyone – understandably – hurried for cover. I was lucky enough to be under a temporary tent 😉

      It’s been a very ‘wet’ summer, and the heavy rains have caused a lot damage in many parts of Japan. Fortunately, the area where I live has not been too affected, but once again, I’m reminded that nature can be frightening as well as wonderful…

      I wish you and your partner a lovely day & weekend ahead too! 🙂
