There is this really beautiful spot off South Boulder Rd, an old barn in front of a crazy gorgeous view of the mountains. I have been meaning to head up there to take photos forever and a few days ago me and my little sister Alysia decided it was time. It had begun to rain on the way there, boo. But, I live in Boulder, CO and the saying is "If you don't like the weather, wait five minutes." And so, by the time we were done with our 8 minute drive the rain had let up.
Sadly the gray sky was hiding the fantastic view, but it was still pretty, so Alysia snapped away while I did my usual "strike a poses." Half way through the session it had begun to drizzle, so we hurried along, and then a moment later it was pouring. I mean buckets of water were coming down on us. Naturally my first instinct was to protect my camera, in the process of yanking it off my poor little sisters neck I managed to hit her in the head with it, haha. Well, she was a trooper anyway and stuck in her shirt as we ran toward the car. We were hysterically laughing the whole way because my dress was tight enough around my knees that I couldn't take very large steps and because I was wearing pretty high flat-forms I was taking ridiculous small tip toe steps as quickly as possible while holding on to Alysia. I am sure I looked like the most prissy person on the planet, by the time we got to the car we were drenched.
When I got home and looked through the photos I realized that my ISO was way too high and there was a water mark on at least half of the images. Needless to say things did not go as planned. I thought about scrapping them all together and going back for a do over on a clearer day, but Alysia and I laughed a lot during the session and it made me sad to delete the images that went along with that memory. So here they are!
