We had a fabulous time in Barcelona-it is a perfect place for a photoshoot, so many interesting nooks and crannies, so over the next week or so I'll upload some of my favourite photos, staring with this one. I used a slow shutter speed because I wanted to try to capture the rain (we had great weather, except on one morning when it rained with a vengance). However, it gave me the opportunity to play around with camera settings, so it wasn't all bad! I love this photo for a number of reasons-the subject, the specks of rain, the graininess, the blue umbrella. Although, now when looking at it I think I should crop out some of the foreground..
