Rain in Shanghai

Rain in Shanghai

It rains quite often in Shanghai. Almost like clearing your throat before you move on to another subject in a conversation. On this occasion I had just acquired a “new to me” Mamiya VI dating from the early 1950s and was wandering the streets looking for pictures to try it out. One of the nice things about using digital is the almost bottomless high ISO you can get compared to with film. This was taken as the light faded to twilight – people were going home, when the heavens opened and it began to rain. Women tried various tricks to try to keep themselves dry: I was just trying to protect the bellows on the camera (bad things happen if they get wet).

I like the colours in the picture and the way you can feel that it late afternoon and will soon be evening.
