Well, wouldn’t it be great if we all had an assistant like that when it’s raining? Taking pictures in the rain with an umbrella slumped over one shoulder doesn’t really work that well. Or better, it’s not very comfortable at all and in fact very annoying. That generally means that I usually just keep the camera in the bag, unless I have an interesting subject like this in front of the lens.

One of these days I should also spend some time organising my pictures. By now I have lost track of which pictures I have posted where and had to go through quite a number of older posts to make sure that I’m not repeating myself with this one. I hope I didn’t overlook anything.

  4. Great photo! Yes, my wife is my assistant (sometimes) and I’m her assistant (very oft). I like your B&W both from digital and from film. The subject you find are interesting and appropriate for B&W.

  7. Excellent photo Verena!!! I am envious of your street photos…around here are just farms and farm animals. B&W was the perfect choice with this shot!!!

  9. It’s a wonderful moment captured at the exactly right time. It’s sweet and funny, and yes, wouldn’t we all like a little assistant like that once in a while – at least when it’s raining. The posture of the woman is quite something! I like that you included the couple in the background. It adds depth to the picture. If you had closed in of the photographer and her assistant the picture would have been quite one-dimensional.
