There’s a fun story to when I took this photo (same place as this one, too). I wanted to do something on my day off, so I ran out to some park that I googled.
It really was beautiful – a fire had gone through there not too long ago, and the regrowth made a great contrast to the blackened husks here and there. But it started raining, and since I’m an idiot, I decided to do it anyway. It just got muddier and muddier as time went on. But at least I had the place to myself.
Of course, using a camera outside in the rain would be idiotic.
But at least I was keeping myself dry and clean.
But all of my stuff survived, none worse for the wear.
Main picture was taken with my 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 IS. It’s my widest lens, and definitely the one that feels the cheapest. After the fact I considered that my weather-sealed more expensive telephoto lens probably was at less risk. But hey, what’s the point of having a camera if you can’t take it out just because it’s raining?
