This summer’s weather has been just about as unpredictable as my mood. One moment hot, one moment cold. The sun is scorching your skin one day. The next you can’t find an umbrella big enough to protect you from full body saturation. If you enjoy this unpredictability, maybe we should date– or maybe you should talk to a shrink. Anyhow, when it came time to shoot last week, the talented Michael Stiegler had only a small window of time to snap before the sun went down. As it happened, that was the exact same time Mother Nature decided she was going to open up the flood gates and water the flowers. The upside of my sometimes scattered moods is that I tend to adapt well to what might seem like unsavory obstacles. Rather than postpone for a day without rain, we grabbed an umbrella, headed to the roof and proceeded to make the best of a soggy situation. And much like many of our more impromptu photoshoots, we came up with images that were surprisingly good. Life lesson? When it rains, dance.
