I have spent my share of time sitting in cars watching people walk past in the rain and I have spent some time trying to capture the mood with my camera. The rain has to be coming down at a certain rate - or you have to time your windshield wiper just right - to get a shot where things aren't so blurry that they are unrecognizable, or where the rain just doesn't provide enough distortion. You have to be patient and lucky. I think I got lucky on this typical, Vancouver, winter day on Tenth Avenue. I heightened the vibrancy of the colours to make it, hopefully, even nicer than it was in the car, looking out the windshield.
