San Francisco in the Rain, Fuji X100 and Fuji XE-1

I have spent nights out walking in far more hospitable conditions in which to shoot street photography.  Even so, there’s something uniquely relaxing about walking through the city in the rain intentionally and looking for photographic opportunities among the throngs of people hurrying to get out of the weather.  This is what I brought back.

A friend of mine once showed me his extensive library of 4×6 prints of broken umbrellas that he’d taken while living in Barcelona and Paris in the early 90s.

Until that day, I’d never noticed the number of discarded umbrellas that litter the streets and trash bins in San Francisco following a wind-and-rain storm.
