Anyone who's ever been to New Orleans in the summer knows that it rains about once per hour, followed by hot, sunny, humid weather. On June 15, 1957, I made a short stopover in New Orleans en route to ROTC Summer Camp. Shooting the original Kodachrome I at ASA 10, most of the slides I took in the rain came out overexposed, something practically unheard of in those days of slow speed film. But somehow I lucked out on this particular exposure, catching the pedestrians dashing between the raindrops with the sun peeking out overhead on Canal Street at St. Charles. 35mm Kodachrome by William D.
