So what if it is raining, we’re not going anywhere!

Today was a March rainy day here in Maryland and I was tempted to go out in the rain and take pictures knowing that you can get great pictures even when it is raining.  Instead I decided to look through some of my collection and remembered the International Festival that took place in Baltimore a few years ago.
Things were going great when all of a sudden a heavy downpour of rain surprised everyone.  Yea, I ran for cover but then I got my camera out to see what people were going to do.  I was surprised at how many people just continued what they were doing like the ladies who I watched standing in the rain under an umbrella chatting for about a half of an hour.  Some just continued to enjoy the food and activities.  Others decided that it was best to leave.
After a while the sun came out and it was business as usual with a great Ashford and Simpson concert at the end of the day.

Some especially with children decided to leave

Let it Rain! You can still take great pictures.

The Baltimore International Festival was interupted by downpours. Some ran for cover, some stayed. My favorite images were taken during the rain. Ashford and Simpson closed this free event with a great concert.
