Where is a Spider on a Rainy day ?

Canon PowerShot SX100 IS 1/60 second F/2.8 ISO 80 6 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Poor guy seems to be under the droplets. Rain, so much rain in Mexico City this past week. Your image is a good reminder that there is no reason to put away the lens even on an apparent gloomy day. Glorious black and white; love those drops too.

@Luis A. De Jesus R.: hey, thanks . you know, I have a cheap camera and never care what will happened to it when shoting on a rain . even for this shot I cleaned my lens a few times, since I need to come very close to these drops to get a good shot . be brave next time :)) or just use some old , cheap camera :)) j
