  1. Beautiful! Is this your husband, the man with the umbrella? Great model for the picture ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ Have a fine day, Jane

    • Thank you, Heidi. No, that man just happened to pass by….my husband was waiting for me in the car…smart, given the weather. ๐Ÿ˜‰ great to hear from you and hope you have a wonderful day, too!

  2. This is a truly smashing shot. It reminds me of one shot of James Dean – do not ask who the photographer was!

  3. wow – I’m glad I’m inside. This really captures the moment!

  4. This is truly such a magnificent photograph, Jane.
    Beautifully captured.

  5. Wonderful treatment of this one Jane. Storytelling at its best

  6. the mood here is just so soothing….love this…what a great feeling…so free…๐Ÿ‘

  7. Amazing! What a wonderful mood and scene. Despite the rain you captured a really beautiful moment. Robert has right: it is still from a film noir. And it is definitively a great shot and still a fine study in black and white.

  8. Wow. Just gorgeous in every respect.

  9. Still looks good in the rain. Or at least YOU make it look good. Great mood, great contrast and fabulous composition.

  10. A Lovely Contradiction -rather dreary environmental scene and tonality contrasts with such a smart, impressive composition!

  11. Trying to make out what sort of โ€˜hutโ€™ that is. ๐Ÿค”

  12. Wow, what an impressive photo๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  13. I love the moodiness of this shot. B & W is perfect for that. You can almost feel the wind and rain!

  14. Amazing click Jane. The picture tells a beautiful story or many stories. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  15. Jane,
    Absolutely beautiful. I love this!!!

  16. I absolutely love the man walking in rain. Itโ€™s a perfect picture in my humble opinion. Itโ€™s gorgeous!!!!โ€™

  17. Not really beach weather, is it? ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. Going out into the rain was well worth it for this shot.

  19. This captures the mood of a rainy day down at the Warming Hut. Beautiful work, Jane.

  20. hello jane, what a wonderful photo i especially like the background with the golden gate bridge
    greeting robert

  21. I love the reflections and the mistiness.

  22. Marvellous work: first of all being there in that kind of weather and then having the knowledge to make the best of the given.

  23. A wonderful picture this is! Every photographer should have a pool of volunteers going out in bad weather. And-ehm… a yes! Go out themselves as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Most atmospheric, and certainly more than a little ‘noir’, Jane!

  25. Great atmosphere! I agree with Jane Iwan – – like a still from a film noir. “The gumshoe plodded through the driving rain toward the meet-up, one hand holding an umbrella to keep his deck of Luckies and the twenty large in his breast pocket dry, the other on the butt of the heater in his right coat pocket…”

  26. Love the mood of this. Has a noir feel.

  27. He looks lonely and cold. Nice work Jane. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  28. Ah, how I love the mood in this one –

Love to hear what you think...
