Seeking shelter from the rain

i promise I will get back to posting nude and boudoir photography soon….with the heat, that has been quiet but I’m in the thick of wedding photography season. Several shoots in the works for the Fall. I was out today on the motorcycle, and unexpectedly was caught in an afternoon shower. I was in an industrial, almost ghost town area of Nashville…There isn’t much but some industrial stuff and through traffic through there, maybe that’s why I like it, and even photographed some buildings in that area, LOL.

I decided to get under the roof of an abandoned gas station pump area, seeking shelter from the rain. It was roped off. There was a guy standing under the roof and he lifted the rope for me to get in. I said thanks, and cooled my heels for a bit until the rain passed. He was on foot, which I wondered about, there are no bus stops near there and there is not usually much foot traffic through there. They say don’t talk to strangers, sometimes it’s the only way to learn and keep your mind open. He was in his late 20’s I’d say, first assumption he could have been a drifter, or slightly down on his luck maybe. I finally asked him, what brings you to this unlikely side of town, on foot? He said there was a Mexican Supermercado nearby that had great tacos. He had the bus stop at the stop nearest this little market, and this was how he felt healing and enjoyed his day off from work. I can relate. It’s good to keep your senses open and notice up close what’s around you. That was about it, the rain was fading and we went our separate ways. Now I know a new place to get good tacos 🙂
