Driveby feel

"A passerby tries to prevent rain from hitting her in the face as heavy rain and strong wind blow on Calvert Street in Baltimore City, Thursday, April 28, 2011."

I am not sure why I like this frame yesterday, but I do.

After a doctor's appointment, I grabbed some breakfast and then sat on Federal Hill.

From there, I thought I'd shoot some street photos before the wicked storm. It was a mix of either a group of people, or completely deserted, as strong storms rolled through. I didn't last long not having a rain coat on me.

As I got in my car, the rain really started to come down. Driving north on Calvert, people began pulling out umbrellas and such. I have a bad tendency to shoot pictures when I am driving, which should be a series of photographs of mine by now.

This woman caught my eye, as she attempted to prevent the sideways rain from pelleting her in the face. Just so happen I wasn't paying attention and severely underexposed the frame. But for some reason everything came together.

I still can't explain it, but I guess that's what a lot of time makes a good street photo to me - the curiosity and randomness that is the street.

More street stuff to come.
