Under very wet conditions Melbourne hosted a successful Welcome to Australia Walk. An event to welcome diversity in a country that is build on immigrants. The weather forecast was clear..100% likelihood that it will rain, and it did rain in a true Melbourne way. Protecting your gear in such conditions is actually not too difficult. A plastic back and some rubber bands, or even better some hair ties is enough. Have a look at this http://improvephotography.com/10390/protect-camera-rain/ website, it gives some nice ideas for keeping your camera dry. Despite the rain I was happy with the photos. The umbrellas and wet faces did add something special. For more photos look here
Like last year we will provide our photography services to the Welcome to Australia walk on the 31 st of October.
