She caught my attention, she was walking towards my direction. I focused my camera on her and started clicking the shutter. Then, I just realized both of us are unmindful of the rain but with a different purpose.

The rain started falling that day and I had the feeling of excitement. Rain is very rare in Qatar where I am working for about a decade now. Excitement as I was longing to take some photos while raining. I grabbed my camera and went outside and fortunately I got an interesting subject.
I saw this lady from afar heading towards me walking purposely seem unfazed by the rains. I took series of photos of her until she walked pass by me. She has bags of clothes with her, I do not know where she is leading to but I should have thanked her I got some precious memory through her photos.
Rain is one of the great happenings here in Doha. No, I am not exaggerating. Since it is seldom raining in this place (approximately 10 times in a year), even drizzles will excite everyone of us.
This is the first time I got motivated to shoot in the rain as I usually want to stay inside the house and enjoy the weather on our bed.
I was supposed to join my photo buddies for a photo walk but due to an scheduled appointment with our cat’s veterinary, I skipped their invitation (this is the second time). After coming back to our house, I noticed the darkening of the skies. I shrugged off the thoughts of taking some photos. But at the back of my head, there is an encouragement to proceed since it seldom rains in Doha and it is weekend.
Upon weighing up my options, I packed my cam and drove immediately to Souq Waqif. Fortunately, the moment I reached the place the rain started to fall. I secured myself in a corner where I will not get wet and waited the right moment to click the shutter.
