That made a nice effect on the scene. I would never have guessed it is thru plastic windows.

Just the way I remember The Hub.

Sharon said...

I love this photo. It has atmosphere and for some reason makes me think of an Edward Hopper painting.

Sunny said...

How creative; you've turned a rainy day into a work of art.

Very nice. I knew those tourists buses were good for something:)

Sharon Creech said...

What an unusual and terrific shot. And no flash reflection. . .I am a novice so I wonder how you managed that.

Fabulous. Again! Romantic too.

The rain streaked windows create a wonderful effect. You certainly know how to make the best out of a rainy day.

This is worthy of a painting, although the next time I see Sharon I will tell her that I disagree with her comment about Edward Hopper. Hopper would have painted this scene with light and shadows, not through the rain-streaked window.

Anya said...

It looks wet ;)))))
Amazing shot ....

JM said...

You managed to get the most fantastic camera filter! :-) Love this shot!

Fantastic artistic shot. It looks like a very old oil painting. Take away the traffic sign and even with the newer cars it looks old. Love it. MB

This is lovely beyond words...I like it so much. You could be looking through one of those 60s beaded curtains. Surreal.

I think I have not seen before so interesting photo.

Brenda Bowen said...

Beautiful, Bratcat. And so like you to find beauty in the rain.

Bob Crowe said...

So that is water dripping down the windows? Way cool. There's a photographers' saying that good luck favors the prepared. You obviously were.

Boise Diva said...

Like it!

T. Becque said...

Two words: very cool!

Amin said...

Beautiful idea.

Just superb!

I wonder how you did this. Wonderful!

Painting with rain . . . I like everything about this creative image. You were in a good place and made the most of this torrential downpour.
