Rainy Day

Uploaded: February 20, 2005


Rainy Day, for lack of a better title, and dug in my archives for this one.

This was taken last March, during a shopping trip with my sisters, Mom and friend. While they shopped I shot. I was under a glass overhang, in front of a large drug store. Across the street is the Hudson's Bay Department Store. I was a rainy, cool, moist day.

Sorry, but I can't remember the settings - something quick, cause it was hand held.

In PSE2, changed from colour to b&w. Quick fixed, straighte

Visiting your gallery is a pleasure. I single out this picture because high key B&W always impresses me. There are a few in your gallery. The one with the ducks is also quite nice. I would be happy to learn how to take such pictures. #2912011

Thanks very much Philippe - I will be happy to share sometime. #2912273
