Rule #1 of photojournalism--always keep a change of clothes in your car.

Today,  it rained. A lot. I was supposed to have two sports assignments, so I wore all weather-proof everything. My second game ended up being cancelled but cross country still ran on. This was the Bicentennial League boys and girls championships at Tyler State Park. The rain broke during the boys competition at 3 p.m. but it was a monsoon for the girls at 3:30. It's really tough shooting in this kind of weather especially with all the stuff I carry (and trying not to get that wet). You find places to hide from the rain though, and you work it out.
