This week’s top picture
was sent in by Andy Grant who took it in Castiglione del Lago
in Umbria, Italy, at the end of August, while he was on holiday
there with friends and family. “It was an extreme thunderstormy
day,” he remembers. "But it didn’t seem to
bother my daughter, Adela, who carried on striding up the
road as we huddled in a doorway. I like the picture because
it conjures up a possible narrative. I like the watery wash
effect the rain gives the image. And I like the kid scurrying
across the road in the background.” Andy took the picture
on a Pentax Optio S40 digital camera. We like the quintessentially
Umbrian look of the scene. We feel that it could easily have
been a still from an Italian movie. Keep sending your pictures
in to email@example.com.
We love getting them.
