Measuring Rain in Megapixels

The weather during the past few days have made the world look like a great big softbox. The lighting is subtle and subdued, as if, all the harshness and sharp edges are gone from the world. I've heard it said that "the best camera is the one that's with you." There's even a book by the title from photographer Chase Jarvis.

So it was yesterday that I found myself wandering around in my downtown alley ways with the iPhone sipping a cup of coffee and pretending to fend off the rain...but not really caring and soaking it all in...two megapixels at a time.

"The air was soft, the stars so fine, the promise of every cobbled alley so great that I thought I was in a dream."
