I made this image on the bus in the rain coming home from work. I was trying to take photos of pedestrians but was getting frustrated with the foggy glass and the wet windows making it hard to focus and see through to the scenes outside.
I’d like to say that I had this epiphany where I remembered the stoicist philosopher reference to something about “whatever is in the way is the way”, and I started looking at these rain covered windows as an opportunity to focus on the drops.
The truth however is that I just know that this is a cool technique to use when you have a rainy foggy window - channeling my inner Saul Leiter. I used my Fuji X-T2 and the 35mm f/2.
