New on 500px : Monsoon by juliemayfeng by juliemayfeng

India, Kolkata, Monsoon

Rain makes everything so dramatic. Even though it’s uncomfortable to take photographs in bad weather, it gives us a good opportunity to capture the different moments. During the monsoon season, weather is extremely hard to predict. At the time, I was eating lunch at a street café. Suddenly it started to shower. I borrowed an umbrella from a stranger and ran out into the street. Although I was wet through and through, I was able to capture this fantastic monsoon scene.
