The other day I was out running. A run that took me from the city out in the rainy woods. Moist air came sweeping, creating a full gloom atmosphere by the lights at the runners track. I stop in my steps, stand for a while and turn back home.
Gear is loaded, tripod clicks in place, traffic avoided on my way back, I'm here again.
Camera starts shooting, bulb mode is on. I hold the umbrella over the camera and some shelter is left for myself as well.
It's now 1 hour since I ran the tracks. All I can hear is water hitting the nylon of the umbrella, it makes this sound of drumming.
In the middle of the woods, here I stand and watch the evening lights spread it's life. I go home, happy. Maybe today wasn't such a bad day after all.
