Singing in the Rain
  Singing in the Rain
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.

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.
