Perhaps inspired by the paintings of San Francisco artist Po Pin Lin, I headed downtown to capture the wet streets of Raleigh. It was really a downpour and I shot until my camera started becoming temperamental. As much as we try to stay out of the rain, there is so much more to see when one braves the elements. Anyone can photograph on a sunny day...most choose to stay home when it's not.
Worked as a photographer in Raleigh for over 30 years in various capacities from news photojournalism and sports photography in the 80's to corporate annual report and advertising into the 2000's. Simon has produced greeting cards which have sold over 3 million copies and counting.
