Sometimes, we just see something and say to ourselves, “thats it, take the picture!”, I am not really sure why I felt that way about this image. I guess thats why our professor hands us assignments and says to just go shoot. I was standing in a parking garage for shelter from the storm, when I looked out and saw this image. The two people walking with umbrellas to keep the rain off of themselves, the strong image of the tree…it’s leaves and branches resembling the shape of the umbrellas, the lamp post and sidewalk, the heavy amounts of water on the ground, and puddles….it just said, “go ahead, take the shot”. I am hoping to come up with a name for this image, so if anyone is more connected to thier “inner artist” than I am, please send me a shout! Thanks so much for visiting!

    The ‘That’s the shot’ images are often the ones that work out the best! 🙂

    • Thank you Charly! I am going for my BA in photography. I am currently trying to gather some fine art images in my portfolio, so I am hoping this one will qualify!

  8. A great shot Stan. My photo lecturer used to give us assignments such as photograph objects whose shapes form the letters of your initials. I guess the idea was to make us see.

    • Thank Chris, our assignment was to ” show motion”, I was shooting some panning imagery and also doing long exposures during the rain storm. When I saw this scene, I just set up…and waited for it.
