Project 365 – Day 160: Return visit to Crescent street and more rain

June 08 2012

I paid a quick return visit to Crescent street and Peel this afternoon with the aim of shooting some HDR of cars and anything else that caught my eye.

I didn’t photograph any of the Mercedes that were on display on rue Peel yesterday, so since they were still there I shot some HDR of a couple of models. I’m not a car aficionado and not sure of the particular models I shot. If you know feel free to leave a comment.

Another HDR, but this toime a Black and White image of the chrome work on a Harley Davidson.

To go with the curves of the sports cars I have to include some other eye candy curves.

The terraces on Crescent were full again.

As you may have seen by the rain drops on the car shots, we had a major downpour mid-afternoon. I managed to make it to cover at McGill University when I was on my way downtown. The rain was really heavy for a time and I managed to grab a few poor people making a dash for cover themselves – or in one case using a bin bag for almost total protection ;-)

Hopefully it won’t rain this hard again over the weekend – or the rest of the summer for that matter.
