Approaching Storm/Belmont Bus 1995

From what I recall, I was with my girlfriend around Belmont and Broadway just hanging out when a storm was approaching. It got dark and very windy. I think it was early afternoon. Always fascinated with storms, I started taking pictures while people were looking for a place to hide out. A few minutes later, we too ran for cover as it started to come down in buckets along with frequent lightning. I was lucky enough to get a few shots. This was one of them.

Clearing Storm, Canyonlands 2005

I almost thought this day was lost. It was raining for most of the day. The temperature hovered near 60 degrees and conditions were not great. My fellow photographer/friend and I decided to stick it out. Eventually, as the rain stopped, I grabbed my gear and told my buddy he should get out of the truck with his gear and explore as well. As we were walking, I noticed that fog was rising up from the canyon floor. This was an unbelievable sight. I quick set up my camera and tripod and took some light readings. I shot several rolls of black and white and color film. This was one of the better ones. I shot this with my old Yashica D.
