Photographer Christophe Jacrot's portfolio is ridden with snapshots of umbrellas and rubber boots. The pedestrians scurry about busy wet streets, and though rainy days are for the most part unwelcome, he has made them appear calming and even glamorous.

Jacrot has reinterpreted the dread that often comes with heavy precipitation, "...I like the way rain, snow and 'bad weather' awaken a feeling of romantic fiction within me." It is essential to take note of the marks placed around the term bad weather, relaying his disdain for the negative perspective.

The French artist also aims to take advantage of this under-used vantage point. Water droplets usually inhibit picture taking, and yet, it has proved to be the set of his best work.
