When it rains, invariably I’m out in the muck shooting pictures.  Weather photography is an adventure.

But today, after many days of mulling it around, I just have to say thanks to the driver that thought it would be fun to spray me with water while shooting a picture over on Wright Road the other day.  I know, I know it’s a hazardous job and we put ourselves there, but somebody has to do it.

I tried a few different angles while shooting the photo, but the picture looked better at that spot. Below is what was published in the Press Democrat the next day.


The driver of his truck went really slow as to not spray water all over the place. The driver was very courteous. Kent Porter / The Press Democrat














Out of the nine or so cars that did slow down so as not to spray water on the scene,  I appreciate that.

For that 10th car, you know who you are!  


I had to dry off after this wave hit me... Kent Porter / The Press Democrat
