Japanese on Mars
It has been raining here constantly. And when not raining, overcast. All of which I am sure should have been snow any other year had it not been for this global warming. I found this image while waxing nostalgic for some of the stuff that is temporarily lost after my hard drive damage and it seemed apropos.
I touched it up a couple of days ago, but I shot it on my trip down East in 2005. It was taken at the bottom of the 30 steel stairs at Hopewell Rocks at the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick. At low tide you can walk on the bottom of the bay when the tides have dropped close to 25+ feet depending on the day. That day it was shoe sucking mud on the bottom and a fascinating walkabout in the crappy weather.
A group of Japanese tourists were going down the stairs in front of me. It was drizzling more than anything at this point, but as soon as they cleared the last step, one by one they popped open their umbrellas. The shot is reminiscent of like a Cristo sculpture of sorts. (He is the artist who likes to wrap things in fabric etc).
