When life gives you lemons…take pictures of people with umbrellas!

I went to visit the Rat Hole Gallery in Omotesando today (which is much nicer than the name allows) and it was pouring. I stopped at a small cafe to eat lunch and was told the seating area was only for those who ordered a drink as well. I politely declined paying ¥400 for a small coffee, and took my lunch outside. While I stood there eating a grilled cheese, I noticed the scene unfolding in front of me would make for great photography!

I’ve discovered some of the best photos come in this way, finding a scene and waiting for the right subjects to walk into it. I snapped around 70 photos of people walking by with umbrellas. The ones below I would consider the ‘best’ and each work in their own way. I’d definitely like to hear what you think though.
