During our recent spate of rainy weather, I chanced to be on the sidewalks waiting with my camera in hand and I grabbed a few photographs, of the set two stood out, but I only like one enough to use, so I chose here first before I post to Flickr.
Many of our pavements/sidewalks and streets in Georgetown flood as soon as the place gets cloudy, but the recent rains put a lot of pressure on our poor (excuse for a ) drainage system. 🙂
At least this fellow was prepared for the weather, not only with an umbrella, but with long boots as well. 🙂

Very nice Mike. From the reflections on the water to the street light in the background.
Thanks Scheme, everything fits nicely doesn’t it? 🙂
This is one thing that we don’t do very often; waiting in an appropriate spot for the right combination of circumstances to arise. This is very nicely spotted.
True, there’s not always the time to do that 🙂
Check my blog tomorrow morning. You will be receiving an award. 🙂
Now what did I do? 🙂
Great Shot! I love the texture of the water and the sense of darkness inferred by the traffic light.
Thanks Simon, I figure this one is right up you “alley” 🙂
and for a daytime photo, the place was very dark…
The reflection is great and so is the entire look of the image in black and white. It tells a great story even with the traffic lights. 😉
Thanks Martina, I almost used this for my Deck photo last week 🙂
This is so atmospheric. Admirable work, Michael!
Thanks Cindy, as usual, the rainy photo I was looking for I didn’t find, but this was a great shot from the day 🙂
Really dig the silhouette of the person and his reflection. Really nice capture Mike!
Thanks David (Williams), Glad I was there at the time 🙂
This is a wonderful “street photography”
Great composition, lovely reflection and perfect silhouette. It give the viewer the sense of being right there. Great timing on your part.
Thanks Sandra, I stood waiting for several minutes, hoping for the right moment 🙂
