Rainy Town / by Mike Stacey

Queen's birthday or something I think? Anyway, it was Monday and it was a holiday, and it rained, a bit, but not too much. Just enough to place a nice shine on the black asphalt.

I'd scoped some great inner city alleyways during a few days working in the city. Some long lunches and many kilometres of walking, geo-tagging and taking mobile shots gave me a route to follow which would take about two hours.

Arranged to shoot with Nic Nyx - had a fun time roaming the alleyways and shooting. It was quite dark and even though I had the shutter fixed on 1/125, many shots are not sharp. The Pentax is very hard to hold steady, it's like a brick.
