What Do You Do When it Rains in Dublin?

Well, one thought is to go photographing! Dublin has become one of my favorite European cities with its friendly people, great culture and endless things to photograph. My last day in Dublin was a dreary rainy day so I had to make lemonade out of lemons. I remembered the cobblestone street in front of The St. James's Gate at the Guinness Brewery. It is a perfect place to photograph in the rain as the water creates great reflections and highlights the texture of the stone. I patiently waited in the rain until someone interesting walked by as I wanted to add an element of interest in the image. After about 15 minutes, this pedestrian with a bright pink umbrella appeared out of nowhere. I crouched low to the ground in composing the shot and created leading lines with the train tracks and yellow lines. I think it was worth getting soaked to capture this image!
