Architecture in the Rain
It’s a law of architectural photography that buildings never (or nearly never) be portrayed in the rain. Why? Because for the most part, wet buildings look about as sad as wet dogs; their features, so finely rendered by daylight and contrasted against blue skies, become muddled, flattened under a fresh layer of rainfall. Still, it’s a shame — after all, not many of us will be able to experience all these buildings IRL, forcing us to make do with highly-idealized photography that captures structures only at their best. (Thus, “eye candy.”)
But we want more! Take a look at these pieces of architecture, all caught in the middle of a rainstorm, and see how different they looks when splashed with a bit of H2O.
