    Oh, I love this one!!! Wonderful wet reflections & I love the feel of the crowded walkway & how it looks as if they’re trying not to bump into one another as they scurry by. Nice touches of red, as well. OK…I’ll be quiet now. :)

  • No! Do continue Marsha!

    Very highly interesting, and, modern work of art; which contains a strong sense of movement; you can almost hear the crowds feet cluttering all along the pavement; and, feel the sensation of what it’s like to be wet with rain! ;-)

  • Thanks Paul. Great comment!
