#28 Transport In The Rain

A man hails a taxi in the rain in South London, England.

The idea of shooting in the rain has always appealed to me.  The reflections from the water on the ground.  People huddled under brollies. Others running for cover because they have no brolly.

Unfortunately, I’m always scared of damaging the camera!  I’ve got rain covers for my DSLRs but I rarely take them out unless I also have a tripod – not ideal for street shooting.

Now, I think I’ve found my camera of choice.

I recently got a Sony NEX5 which has a screen that tilts out and allows me to shoot at waist level.  It’s fantastically small and I’ve found it doesn’t scare people like a large DSLR with large lens does. What a difference this makes – I think this will be my new ‘street’ camera of choice.
