A smile in the rain

I was standing in the middle of one of the heaviest rain Iâ€™ve shot on. As always, I was drenched from waist down and I kept my camera as close to the umbrella as possible. Iâ€™ve been waiting and shooting for about 30 minutes shooting here and there, but I havenâ€™t really seen anything peculiarâ€¦ until I saw a woman from afar wrapped with a shawl walking gracefully towards my side of the street. She just stood out from all the others who were equally rushing to shelter. Itâ€™s one of those moments when I thought â€œI HAVE to photograph her.â€
I positioned myself in her path, crouched down, and took a series of shots until she walked past me. Later when I reviewed the shots, it was then that I realized she was smiling! She probably noticed me taking her picture. Or maybe she just really loved the summer rain. Maybe bothâ€¦ Iâ€™m not sure. But I knew I had a keeper.
