March, and its still raining in Brisbane

walking in the rain

Its March and its still bucketing down rain in Brisbane.  I always see these days as a great opportunity to get and take photos with a weather sealed camera rather than sitting at home waiting for the rain to stop.  The results are often very different then every day photos taken in beautiful sunshine.  Today while I was on the streets I was using the Olympus OM-D E-M5 and noticed that in the heavy downpours it was taking photos by itself.  I was using the rear touch screen to compose photos as the electronic view finder had fogged over (the first time ever) and even though I had the touch screen switched off for taking photos via the touch of a finger, it seemed as though the very heavy large drops of rain had switched this feature on for me and were taking photos for me.  I decided to test the theory and continued to stand in the rain with the LCD screen exposed (camera facing down) and sure enough the camera continued to take photos  - something I had never though possible!  Here are a few of the photos from the day.
