Singing in the Rain

---
Shot this photo during my one-and-only attendance at the iconic Philadelphia Folk Festival in the summer of 2011. Naturally, it rained on and off during the entire day. But just light showers--until this evening performance.
---
Within two minutes I was drenched to the skin, but I had come prepared and had two grocery plastic bags to protect my two cameras and lenses. Worked FINE, even for the mile-long walk back to the muddy parking lot (the car luckily did not get mired).

The brave souls on stage were under a canopy.

Nice Catch I especially get a kick out of Rainy Day Shots as we see so few. I bet you had a hoot shoot there, WTG

Braving all the hardships to get over and enjoy this festival was rewarded with this beautiful photo that shows so much of what the festival is about. I love the composing, the tones, the look Michelle. A real beauty my friend.

Glad you went prepared. I usually carry large black plastic bags just in case as well as a rain sleeve.
