@fcofont: thx so much fcofont! there was a weird light. the rain was hammering down yet the Sun was out. strange...
Stu - Your title is perfect and there is a definite humorous aspect to your capture. At the same time this is touching, charming, and deeply human. You can almost smell and feel the driving downpour. All to your credit. This is a wonderful image.

@Stephen Phillips: Thx stephen! i wish you could've seen the downpour. it's rainy season here in japan and when it rains it's like those pictures of an Indian monsoon. it's really quite incredible. you're soaked in 10 seconds if you're caught out in it. luckily i'd found shelter before the heavens opened so could get the camera out.
Great. Superb image. Well done

@dj.tigersprout: thx dj! No, luckily I found some shelter just before the heavens opened.
This is really fine work. It's slightly humorous and at the same time very soft and lovely. The texture of the rain is particularly nice.

OMG!! Do you really want me to throw my camera away? Because if you keep on getting extraordinary images like this I may have to out of sheer frustration. Brilliant, Stu!!
