Getting Wet
( and not so sure he likes it )

We had a short rain shower today – standard fare for an Ohio summer – and Anthony wanted to go out in it to play. At first he ran around with childlike abandon, and I snapped some shots with my Nikkor 85mm f/1.4, but for some reason every one was horribly out of focus. I didn't notice anything wrong at the time, but anyway, I wanted to get closer without getting wet, so I switched to my Nikkor 70-200mm.

In the short minute that it took for me to get the lens and switch, Anthony's mood went from arms-swinging-around-dancing-like-a-kid play to, as the photo above shows, somewhat serious and a little concerned.

I'm not exactly sure what the issue was, but he soon came in and got some dry clothes. The rain stopped soon after.

In the evening, I was at a restaurant and stepped out to find some spectacular post-sunset colors...

Sadly, some of the brighter deep, rich scarlet pinks bumped up against the dynamic-range limit of the camera, and so ended up as oranges and yellows. Sigh. Maybe I should have done HDR or something to save the true colors.
