I really love this shot - two friends sharing a moment in the rain, sheltered by a single umbrella. It has an intimacy that pulls you into their story. Well done!

Lovely setting, a very dreamy effect. Beautiful work.
30 Apr 2009 6:17am
Love the soothing atmosphere here despite the rain. Rain can be appreciated too, should be, as everything natural around us. And i like that your characters seem to appreciate most of all the fact of being together, sharing this moment, whatever the weather... That's so true !
30 Apr 2009 6:35am
Beautifully composed, love the light in this, wonderful shot!

The caption of the photo makes it even more powerful and romantic! Great idea to use your holga for this one...

a beautiful shot !
30 Apr 2009 8:31am
Sharing an umbrella and watching the scenery in light rain- how romantic and different! Nice shot and composition. Holga or pinhole?
30 Apr 2009 8:35am
@Howard F.: Thank you Howard. This one is shot with a Holga using 120 (medium format) film.
Perfect and chosen that central taking well.
30 Apr 2009 8:37am
nice candid moment
30 Apr 2009 9:02am
Again a very moody (romantic) capture, beautifully presented ... congrats Sharon!
30 Apr 2009 9:05am
this is just such an instant classic...great image bc...is this shot with film?...love the words on friends...sometimes hard to let the walls we build around ourselves go down but when we take that chance life doesn't feel so rude...
30 Apr 2009 10:09am
@Momo: Thank you so much. Yes, it was shot with 120 (medium format) film using a Holga.
I love this little vignette, this glimpse into a friendship. I love the quote you paired with it. Perfect.
30 Apr 2009 12:00pm
j adore le format carré de la scène, superbe ^^
30 Apr 2009 12:07pm

Superb job. It had to be B&W!
30 Apr 2009 12:56pm
It may be a drab dark day. The subjects portray a warmth and intimacy. Very well seen.
30 Apr 2009 1:11pm
All great recent work... you are an artist at heart.
30 Apr 2009 4:18pm
It's very '60s feeling...somehow reminds me of "The Thomas Crown Affair" by Steve McQueen and Faye Dunnaway... :-)
30 Apr 2009 4:30pm
I enjoy your 'umbrella' series. But unlike all the other photos you reveled a face here. Nice shot. I guess in Vancouver an umbrella is a regular, a must carry, almost like a wallet or a key. Funny! And here I`ve used mine ones in the past 3 years. Oh, sad :) I wouldn`t mind some wetness...
30 Apr 2009 4:37pm
I swear, I just love an umbrella on a photo. Crazy, right? Love this.
30 Apr 2009 5:10pm
Very beautiful! I like best that fittiing the weather the foto is not sharp -well done!
30 Apr 2009 5:47pm
Looks like a still shot from a movie - very, very well done.
30 Apr 2009 6:14pm
I believe you added vignetting - and as such, it gives a very timeless quality to the image - a nostaglia of days gone by. For that, I applaud you. Well done.
30 Apr 2009 6:59pm
Oops, I realise from the details on the EXIF - you are using a Holga. The vignette was a natural product of those amazing cameras. Even more fun than playing in photoshop. I must get one. Fabulous work - thanks for sharing.
30 Apr 2009 7:00pm
A wonderfully candid, quaint capture.
30 Apr 2009 7:04pm
Some moments are never spoiled by rain. What a delightful image this is.
30 Apr 2009 7:20pm
well caught !
30 Apr 2009 7:42pm
Sweet Shot :-)
30 Apr 2009 9:20pm
Very interesting, after yesterday's image, I prefer this end to the story ;)
30 Apr 2009 9:25pm
Very sweet shot. Gorgeous in B&W
30 Apr 2009 9:27pm
As it always does when you don't want it to........nice portrait. :-)
30 Apr 2009 11:56pm
So beautifully composed! Such wonderful air and magical mood... that are only heightened through the wonderful use of the Holga! A timeless portraiture...

Hi Blue, for someone who takes a lot of B&Ws, I like that your name has some...color. :) I enjoyed looking through your archive, your images gives me hope that my photos will evoke in someone, the same emotions yours has done for me. Peace.
