I was attempting to shoot the reflection of that lamp in the puddle. Not so effective with my phone camera, but the colours! Front Street at John Street, Toronto.

I wasn't as enchanted with this rainy day as I often am because it was windy as hell.  I bent my umbrella this morning just trying to hang onto the thing, and I won't even mention what my hair looked like when I got to work.  It was still kind of nasty on my way back after work, so I walked underground as far as the CBC Broadcast Centre.  When I emerged the dusk was beautifully reflected in the shiny street.

    These pics are beautiful, the light is perfect. The first one reminds me of an architectural rendering with a walking couple. But I would kill to see some hair pics too!

    haha, well the hair wasn’t worth photographing, I can assure you! Like the idea of an architectural rendering of the couple – am really taken with strangers getting into my photos these days.

    Thank you – rain does wonderful things with that atmosphere, doesn’t it?

    The colours are beautiful and really do give the photos a certain something 🙂

    Thanks – I agree. The filter is meant for nature photography, it saturates the colours. But I love what it does for city photos!
