that's alright - I just got back from Italy last month and can confirm that it rains there too...sometimes. :lol:
Actually I was praying for rain when I was there. I desperately wanted to take some puddle reflection shots of nice buildings on cobble stone roads. But to my dismay (pity me) - it was 30-34 degrees, sunny and dry - ALL week. Over-exposed highlights.

Rain can be good.

Like this?
http://www.flickr.com/photos/downtownda ... et-980179/

That was Prague, a few years back.

The funny thing is, I was also in Italy just now -- probably the same time as you -- but I had a non-weather problem. Something funny is going on either with my film, my camera, or the lab at Downtown Camera, and everything is grotesquely underexposed. :(

Anyway, see you guys this evening. Bring an umbrella!

Hi,
Don't know if I can go, but if yes, how can I find you?

Look for the group of people with cameras (this doesn't really work anymore since everyone has a camera nowadays). I'll bring my orange TPMG tag today. Look for it, it'll be attached to my camera bag.

Oh and as usual, since it's a group of us at such a big location, it'd be best to share some cell phone numbers so it's easier to get back together afterwards or it'll become handy if you get lost or get left behind. PM me for that.

Ok. I'm very new in Canada so I could lose like a small child ;-) I'll try to find you, guys, If I can go there today, of course. Thanks.

Thanks, Thericyip. And if anyone wants my cell #, just PM me and I will happily give it to you.

I will be wearing a green Marmot rain jacket. And if I can find my orange TPMG thingy, I'll try to make that visible as well.

Cheers!
