heavy rain falling at night on a seattle street

Downpour in Seattle

Posted on | Shot on at 18:00:00

An exceptionally wet night in downtown Seattle. I only snapped a couple pics, even with a lens hood on I got rain on my lens, as you can see. I thought this image had a sort of graphic novel/Frank Miller look to it.
