Stormy Weather by Leland Bobbe

Thunderstorms have made their presence known this summer, blasting New York with hail, drenching rain, and blustering wind. And when it rains, people scramble under awnings and umbrellas that for some reason or another, never seem to make the cut. After a strong storm, the streets become the last haven for abandoned, broken umbrellas that have succumbed to the intense wind tunnels between highrises. Photographer Leland Bobbe sees the littered streets in a different way, capturing these rainy-day saviors to symbolize a city that rushes by, too busy to notice the little things.
