Just because there’s nothing but the blackest storm clouds up high and every street from here to eternity is flooded doesn’t mean you can’t whip out your trusty cameras and shoot brilliant photos! Whether you’re nursing a hot cup of coffee while being mesmerized by each rain drop on the glass window or running frantically for cover, the rain certainly has its own mystique that remains unmatched. Of course, most of our analog cameras crave the sun, but a little adjustment in exposure or a faster film will do wonders in capturing the somber but serene mood of the calm after the storm. Just make sure your cameras don’t get wet though!
The Photos page of the Magazine plays host to a big number of images, from this week’s rain theme to anything else you can think of!

So while waiting for the rain to stop, feast your eyes first on these awesome images for this week’s featured Photos! Enjoy!
