Despite the rain, Malgré la pluie
I'm in Bogota, Colombia taking photography classes (http://sietefotografos.com) and the point of this particular class is to get more comfortable with street portraits. I think most people believe that randomly approaching strangers and asking to take their photo is difficult; maybe even daunting, at best uncomfortable...but it is so much easier than I thought! Even with my not quite fluent spanish! I really loved the concept of the colourful umbrellas as the backdrop, but can see now that I could improve the creativity/execution...work in progress.
