Finbar in the rain

photo: Finbar is stood on the right of the image, at the back of the boat in control of the unseen tiller; Finbar is wearing a custard-yellow waterproof mack, and he is smiling at the camera with a guilty look, as though caught in the act; behind Finbar, streching off to the left of the shot, is the River Severn, choppy in the rain and the wake of the boat, and lined by fir trees.

Location: on the River Severn in Worcestershire.

Date: Monday 29th June 1998.

Equipment: Yashica T5 compact.

Emulsion: Fujifilm Superia 400.

Keywords: River Severn, rain, wet weather, waterproof mack, embarassed smile.

Notes: Finbar, disturbed by the rain, thought it a clever idea to shield himself inside the waterproof safety of a bright yellow mack. Until people started photographing him in it.
