We bloggers like a good quote, don't we?

This group is for your favourite quotations, and i'm not just talking about things you read in Bartlett's. It could be an inspirational excerpt from an ancient text; a memorable line from a movie; advice an old school teacher gave that stuck with you. It can even be something you overheard at the bus stop this morning.

Add a poignant photo to accompany your quote.

If you tag the posts, perhaps we can build up a searchable bank of our own favourite words, phrases, quotations...

You get the picture. Join the group and get quoting. You can quote me on that.

Rain's not so bad, I like walking in it myself. :) This shot really works for me. Faved.

Thanks :)

I can't say rain bothers me either. We spent all day in it yesterday though, and it was difficult to take photos without worrying about how soaked our cameras were getting!

Yeah, I worry about the camera too. One of my last issues of Outdoor Photographer had a large section devoted to camera rain gear. It ranged from simple to complex, relatively inexpensive to very expensive. The whole thing was rather overwhelming.

I like a few of them, but still haven't decided which one might be best for me. So, I make sure to wear a hoodie or sweatshirt, keep my camera tucked lens down and carry a few lens cloths with me. :)

Hee. Actually, that's close to the cheapest things out there, called Rainsleeves or somesuch. These things, by OpTech:

Hahaha. Ah man, that looks crazy!

They're cheap for a two pack, and look like they'd work well enough but they'd probably drive me crazy.

Ugh, can you imagine? Hahah. Still, better than a wet camera that no longer works!

Anything's better than a non-working camera! Even so, I doubt I'd manage with these things. I've had the D80 out in some very hard rain. It's gotten wet through 2 t-shirts, a heavy sweatshirt and a hoodie. It's done better than I have in that situation!

Yeah, I'd say thats like soaked to the bone type wet. The wet where you can get no wetter... :)
