I was driving through Paris in a taxicab with a friend when I saw this elegant woman rushing through the rain and I yelled ‘Quick, give me my camera!”  I was able to grab a quick shot and the taxi moved on through the rain – luckily it worked. The date was in 1992, and I was shooting on Ilford delta 400, but now I have no idea of the camera (I think it was a Canon F1). The image has long been a favourite of mine and was exhibited at my one-man show at the Royal Photographic Society’s gallery in Bath, England many years ago. I have FINALLY scanned it so that it is available as a print at a sensible price on my website at http://archive.gwpics.com/#!/index/I0000wBxOF2sLuVU

About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.
