Yep, it rains in California, too ! ;-)

I'm dry and cozy inside my car, experimenting with iPhone shots taken through the windshield.

ps I'm looking forward to getting a new one as my contract is nearly up and the quality on the new camera is way better than the 3G and the earlier models which some of my photos have been taken with.

@Richard: Go For It !! I am so happy with the iPhone 4..... :-)

Processed as ahem.... a Watercolor :) The effect is good, and it appears that your iPhone can take some very interesting shots.

Great rainy shot, my best friend lives in L.A. and he told me he stayed cozily at home while listening to the rain, very exotic for you ;-) Super painterly rendering here of the melting colors.

Maybe my new favorite. I feel the rain sliding down over me, melting "like a cake left out in the rain." Gorgeously surreal and sensual.

It's as if you and your camera were underwater when you took this shot...... so very interesting.
