Ninth & South.

Photograph © Jeremy Wade Shockley 2010.

I shot this image at the Farmer’s Market off of South Street in Philadelphia. I wanted to capture the moment for Rachel, and myself. I wanted to be able to remember with clarity the happiness that Rachel carried so bravely the day before her surgery and the isolation that would define her remaining days on the East Coast.

The rain was appropriate for such a day, and as a street photographer I feel that the ability to evoke the mood of a place and the people within those settings is often a suggestion of the weather. Work with what you have, but never dismiss the photographic opportunities that come along with adverse weather.

Cheers, Jeremy
