Freezing rain nearly thwarted yesterday’s photography project. I was, however, determined. No matter the weather, I was going to capture the perfect street scene with just the right subject in the foreground. Now, the latter part of the assignment wasn’t the problem. Subjects abound, even in the rain. My problem was finding a background that would actually show up as something other than a misty muddle of gray tones. Needless to say, I eventually gave up on the perfect street scene, and opted, instead, to underscore the unsettling fact that the scenery had all but disappeared.
