The moment I stepped out the front door it started pouring down1 min read

The moment I stepped out the front door it started pouring down. I could’ve looked at the forecast but sometimes I just can’t be bothered. I want to go out and shoot some photos either right now or I won’t go at all.

I also needed to do some grocery shopping.

Taking photos usually means taking a walk as well and in this rain, it’s a good thing I did. Riding my bike would’ve meant hitting more drops and therefore more wet clothes. For now, all I needed to be careful with was my camera. The weather resistance will protects its internals but a wet lens still messes up your shots.

The walk to the grocery store in the apocalyptic rain was fine. The grocery store wasn’t too bad. The walk back was dry. Did anything else happen? Not really. But that’s fine. At least I went out to shoot some photos.
