Stormy Weather

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 11 October 2015 in Cityscape & Urban.

The unsettled weather in Nagasaki turned a bit wild on my first visit to the Peace Park. The wind was gusting strongly as I was trying to hold an umbrella and camera. I got lots of abstracts that day and a couple of good shots, too. We'll see more of this guy later.

A note on that umbrella. I bought a cheap one in a convenience store near the hotel. Within five minutes, two of the ribs were bent by a strong gust.

Somehow, this majestic figure seems to be willing calm in a storm. Quite a symbolic atmosphere.

Such weather is not nice. The granules may hurt when you hit the bare skin.

I would love to see - along with the other photographs- the image of the umbrella with two bent ribs:)))))

I had the same umbrella experience in Hong Kong in a typhoon a few years ago. Next time I'll take my own umbrella. ;-)
