Portrait in the Rain
It rained all day today. The weatherman says there is a typhoon brewing out in the Pacific Ocean. Although we could have taken the train, Yumiko and I braved the torrential rain and slogged our way to school. I veered off and took a million not-so-hot photographs in wet Arisugawa Park. Nothing great to show for it except soaking feet. This afternoon, I began a new photo class - this one will concentrate on portraits for the next four weeks. I have avoided taking people photographs for most of this year because I am too shy to ask anybody to pose for me, especially because I don't know how to ask such a question in Japanese. But I did get Yumiko to come back out after school during a short break in the rain and took this shot in the little woods behind our apartment.
