We visited Florence in November 2006, and it rained solidly, we got soaked and didn’t really get to see the city at it’s best. And yet the rain stopped and we captured this shot here. Took on my deceased Olympus minimju 4mp, it struggled a bit with the low light and is a bit grainy, but captured the mood quite well. Employed the old trusted trick of using the self timer, then leaving it be on a sturdy wall. No post processing whatsoever. Not even a little.
I was delighted for this to be featured in “Streams and stream crossings” on 21/3/2010, also “Postcard Style” on 24/3/2010, and the “Other Side of Italy” on 1/4/2010!
