Rainy Day Garden

Rainy Day Iris
I took a walk in Central Park today.  My feet got sopping wet and my umbrella was too small but the park is SO peaceful on a rainy day that getting a little (while, a lot) wet was totally worth it. 

I was reminded, as I always am on cloudy damp days, that the sensor in my camera is too small.  Don't get me wrong, I love my Olympus -- it's just that it does not do so well in low light.  The little bit of research I've done to date suggests that I should switch brands when I upgrade my camera.  I'm in no hurry because for most of what I do, my trusty Olympus works just fine.  For sure I'll need to upgrade if I ever set out on another trip to see the northern lights!

Most of these were shot with my macro lens (a Zuiko) -- it was the only one that I had a reasonable chance of keeping dry under the umbrella (the too small umbrella to be exact).  Since I am a little bored with iPhoto (not many bells and whistles when it comes to editing options), all photos here were edited in Snapseed.
