50mm lens, 1/125s, F2.8
I was struggling with this week's assignment. I would have liked that the topic of essence and concept had been more constrained. I spent most of my energy to decide what I was going to shoot and made a gross misjudgement by going out with my camera and hoping to have a brilliant idea on the spot. Failure, I came back frustrated and with boring pics. I had to search the earlier images to complete the assignement.
Here I tested shooting in the rain. The only creative thing I managed to do this weekend was to come up with this slightly unconventional crop. Hope it works and the photo conveys the essence here.
