An image of a rainy day can instantly take you to the calming sounds of raindrops hitting a roof, the cozy feeling of watching rain fall from inside a house or cafe, the romantic light and silhouettes reflecting in wet city streets, or the crisp smell of the air after a passing storm. Take a look at these amazing photos made by Navid Baraty, a photographer from Brooklyn, NY, USA and get the feeling yourself. Navid is the same photographer who made these awesome photos of New York Coty, seen from above.
With an umbrella in one hand and my camera wrapped in a plastic bag in the other, a rainy day is one of my favorite times for shooting. Rain makes such wonderful lighting on reflective city streets, and creates compositions that portray so much mood and feeling. – Navid Baraty
