Rain by daaram Rain by daaram
I shot this picture in August 2005 in the edges of the River Seine at the "Paris Plage /Paris beach event. I took the picture still walking of people under the rain...an artificial soft rain in the Parisian summer.

This is some links to other pictures from the same serie published at D.A:

The title is:"Rain" but it didn't rain at all this day...it was in August and the weather was so hot, and this "rain" come from a huge atomizer machine ! anyway these people weren't sad I think, just passing under this rain...if there's sadness it's more a mystical one ...like a pray !

These dark shadowy persons in the front really adds some depth to the picture =) I like that. A lot. I like the entire scenery. Maybe the blue, whatever they are, annoys me a little but it's not a big deal. Very pretty :heart:

Hmm do you mean the blue thin flags on the right part of the picture ? I think it goes well with the orange Tee-shirt on the left part ! it"s like another story in the story like for these Russian dolls you know !

Thanks for your comment Marta ! I'm glad you like it ! :-)

Yes, the thin flags, exactly! Hmm, you have a funny idea about it =) Those russian dols always amused me. We have two, one big and one little ;P When I was little I likeed playing with them =)

Yep it's a funny idea I know ! these flags are a bit strange and nice here, different from all the rest of this picture and it makes me think about the flags you can see on the sea-side you know...here in Paris, no sea...just the River Seine and it's very nice but Paris is also an industrial and polluted town !
I love these Russian dolls ! to see, to touch and opened it ! this Dolls stories make me think about Alfred Hitchcock and his personnal way to write a story ! here for example for me, the young woman in orange tee-shirt knows the young man all in black...there're futur lovers ! :-)

i dont mind tht as well.... bright sunny days, rainy gloomy days and white snowy days... i love everything.
i just love everyday which brings freshness in your mind and when u can feel it in ur bones!!!

imagine a day when u get up in the morning feeling wonderful... and u walk down the same street, u have walked all ur life, but this time u r walking it with a new spirit.. a certain kind of lightness... a certain kind of freedom.. perhaps from ur own burdens! or perhaps just from the mundane routine of life! the sunlight playing wonderful colours and shadows around u... just for u to see and appreciate!! the rain drizzling softly just to make u feel fresh!!! the snow drifting down to the earth just to please ur eyes !!!

these r days when u feel life is pampering u with its beauty.

it only lasts for a few moments but the feeling is almost eternal. its difficult to forget it and almost impossible to relive it.

A signature ? hmm no, I wanted something "empty", very silent with a secret story inside character's heads !
But it's a good idea ! :-)

Great photo, Olivier! I love the way the figures are indistinct! the semi-silhouette effect of the foreground figures is nice.
I love the texture of the ground - shiny from the water and bumpy from the stones.

Yes all their figures are indistinct...great for the rights than people have with their own face and personalities.
Thanks very much for your comment John !

I hadn't though of that aspect - good point.
Plus it make the image more about setting and mood than about individuals. I like that. :)

This photo is incredible...

The sense of mistery and time slowing is amazing... some how reminds me some of my favorite scenes of some of Ridley Scott movies...

A suspended moment in time... one of those instants that if you are lucky gets frozen in a photo.

This in my hummble opinion is one of your best photos...
