Been pretty wet lately - fairly typical of the season. Slipped out for a walk today with my Zachary in between downpours.

A99ii + CZ 135 1.8.

The Taste of Rain


2.
Where do the rain drops go?


3.
None Shall Pass ***


4.
Joy Unleashed


The West Coast is always fun. Even in the rain.

*** Edit: Changed title of Number three. (Formerly "Puddle hunter")

Cracking shots all. #1 is a real joy to behold but I think I will have to go with #3 as my pick. The exposure on him is very nicely judged (even if it was helped in post).
Well done.

Fantastic set Mike and very hard to pick a favourite but if I had to it would probably be #3 by the narrowest margin.

The 135mm and a99ii certainly is a formidable combo especially in expert hands as these shots are a testament to.

Always a joy seeing shots of your little doppelganger as well mate. TFS

Crackers indeed! Quite a hard choice between #1 and #3 but I have to go with the above...#3 is the stand out shot!
Give's me a "none shall pass" feel like he's waiting for whatever will come down that road ready for the "draw"

@ Atom Ant Thank you! Number three has indeed had some manipulation.   

@ Steve Thanks much - appreciate that you are not sick of photos of Zachary - God knows you see enough of them.   

@Fred S Thanks Fred.

@ Johann   I SO need to have a chat with you when I am stuck for a title. "None shall pass".... brilliant. I am going to borrow that for when I share it to my Flickr.      And thanks!

I think all are quite cracking, except perhaps three, it kind of looks as if he created the puddle. You are a pretty great photographer and know how to create portraits with atmosphere at any rate : )

Oh my...   at first, I could not figure your comment on three, then I had another look. That is just TOO funny! Thanks so much for that!   

And thanks also for your other generous comment Kilkry.

1 or 3? I was going to say 3 but ... I wish I hadn't read Kilkry's comment! ...

Thanks Waldo, Paul and Paul! I have decided to change the name of number 3.... "Puddle Hunter" now sounds far too close to something else to me.

"None Shall Pass" it is. (Thanks Johann!)
