Playing a Penny Whistle in the Rain

Playing a Penny Whistle in the Rain

The Burren, County Clare, Ireland

When we got to the Burren, it was raining pretty hard. This man and his dog were sitting there in it: he was playing lovely Irish tunes for tips. Rain drops got on my lens and back monitor making it hard to tell what I was doing and certainly diminishing the quality of the image. Despite that, I thought this looked kind of interesting trying various vintage treatments that go with the blur. A penny whistle is similar to a flute.
