Despite everything, I’m choosing to look at this as an essentially optimistic photograph. Sure, when you look at it in one way, the poor man clearly had no chance of staying dry with one umbrella against all of that, but if you choose to look at it more favorably, the very fact that he tried seems kind of wonderful, don’t you think?
