Slowly autumn is catching up with us as well. The temperatures are dropping and the incessant San Sebastian rain is threatening to pour down on us come Saturday. While San Sebastian is usually mild in summer and even in autumn, the rain here can be quite unbearable. Two or three weeks of uninterrupted rain are not unheard of and people around here carry huge umbrellas when the weather is bad. Here it usually doesn’t only rain, it pours. I guess it has something to do with clouds from the sea meeting the mountains. My umbrella definitely decided to give up when it was facing the wind at seafront yesterday and of course I got caught in that weather in the wrong shoes as well. After these last sunny days I wasn’t quite expecting the weather to be this bad. Next time when I decide to take my Zorki for a spin, I’ll be better prepared for the weather.

By the way, handling the Zorki with one hand when you’re holding an umbrella is actually quite difficult even when zone focussing. Especially forwarding the film is rather uncomfortable with one hand and of course focussing on eye level becomes rather impossible. And lets just say that water leaking into the camera isn’t really that great even with a film camera. The humidity was probably what caused the film to rip in the end.
