In the Rain

  1. I like the atmosphere in the picture: the reality of the street with the bikes on one side and this solitary man on the other who I imagine goes home after a hard day at work.

  2. Excellent street scene. I like the way you focus on the bicycle and not on the people.

  7. So much in the photo - but I hope you weren't crying. For myself . . . I find rain cheerful and invigorating and like it that I can walk with a spring in my step and a grin on my face without anyone noticing how happy I am - because nearly everyone will have their heads down. And I like puddles too - and walk through them when I can.

  8. LOVE this photo James! So much to look while my eye is drawn around the photo.
    It's easy to feel the gloomy and rainy day.

  10. I love the photo James, it is not an easy photo to take. The little quote is so sad, why would he say that.

  11. J'adore la photo autant que le commentaire. Il y a une densité tragique dans ce noir profond et ce léger tremblé qui rendent l'image très saisissante
