Walking around with camera in hand while it is raining is not advisable, at least not if you value your equipment. This thought came to me while I was getting rained on during my recent trip to Dallas. Fortunately, most of the nastiness passed and left the streets empty and wet, which makes me happy. I was able to walk around virtually by myself, snapping this and that, and generally sweating like crazy due to the summer heat and humidity. That's ok though - I like the look of wet streets and figured it was worth it!
