The clouds loomed throughout the hot August day. It felt like we were buying time, hoping that the storm would begin after the Mad Decent block party ended. But right before the headliner, Major Lazer was to perform lightning started shooting from the sky to end the show. The rain came down real hard. The crowd raced to the exit. I stayed behind, trying to capture what was left. I found shelter inside one of the vendor shacks near the exit to avoid getting my equipment left. While stuck underneath with another photographer and a paramedic, a couple began to kiss in the rain.
You can see the rest of the photos for the event HERE.

On Assignment for Urban Daddy
Mad Decent Block Party
August 5, 2012
I’m just copying and pasting what I wrote on my FB photography page:
“I love this about New Yorkers. They won’t let a little rain ruin a good time. Despite the thunderstorm that passed through NYC last night, places were packed. This was taken a little bit after the worst of it subsided…just long enough to hit the ATM.”
I think this photo was taken outside of Sweet and Vicious on Spring Street. Can’t remember.
Evening after rainfall. This is likely my last post of the month. Tomorrow I leave for New Orleans for a week. I’ll post some photos from the city that is a huge source of inspiration for me. It’s been a swell month and it’s ending in a swell way. Cheers.
I thought today’s theme was appropriate given the weather here in NYC. Good news is that it feels like Spring.
