I’m one of those people that hates bad weather. If I see it raining, more importantly, if I see it grey, overcast and windy, then Enda is in a bad mood. Don’t get me wrong some days I love the slow pitter patter of raindrops on a porch or window and the distant sounds of a thunderstorm, that stuff is nice and ironically makes me feel good. I’m talking about the bad weather that engulfs Galway for about 90% of the year. Just bland, bleak and never changing. Utter shite.
Anyway, the whole point of this is that I decided to try and tackle this! I challenged myself to head out in the rain with my 50 mm prime lens and capture the beauty of Galway in the rain. This forced me to try and find the beauty in the rain, try and create unique perspectives and angles that look good in a photo. It was actually really fun! I actually want to do it again, it was good craic and it helped me improve my photography technique. So this is what I managed to capture, hopefully, it makes you see rainy days more positively…
Let me know what you think!
