Commenting on and complaining about the weather is a very British thing to do. I don't do it. I'm only half British anyway - the other half of me's Irish. I'll say one thing, though; I like the rain. I like it so much more than the sun :)
I'd love a digital SLR camera with an amazing shutter speed. Specifically one of 1/500 of a second so I could take awe-inspiring pictures. I know that this is a good shutter speed because recently in a newspaper I saw a picture of a bubble popping that was captured with a camera with that amenity. I want to take the kind of photos that can only educe the word 'Wow'.
It's unfortunate the rain is an amazing time for photography when so many cameras aren't waterproof.
