Rain

Today, it rained and rained and rained

Today it rained and rained and rained in Brisbane. Today, it was really wet, and flooding was quite bad with many people braving the unfavourable weather to get to places. Today some places received over 300mm (12 inches for those who are still in the imperial world) within a few hours. And, today I decided that I needed to grab a camera and lens and capture a few shots on the streets of Brisbane in the rain. This is where it really helps to have a weather sealed camera (and preferably a weather sealed lens to go with that). Sadly, I only had my new cinematic 16mm Veydra lens (see http://www.veydra.com/) with me. This is a brilliant manual focus lens designed specifically for video, however, it is not weather sealed. Nonetheless its a brilliant lens which I have recently been using for still photos on the street, so I grabbed the Olympus OM-D E-M5 II, mounted the lens (with a snug fitting rubber band around the base of it) and then hit the streets.

March, and its still raining in Brisbane

walking in the rain

Its March and its still bucketing down rain in Brisbane.  I always see these days as a great opportunity to get and take photos with a weather sealed camera rather than sitting at home waiting for the rain to stop.  The results are often very different then every day photos taken in beautiful sunshine.  Today while I was on the streets I was using the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and noticed that in the heavy downpours it was taking photos by itself.
