This image was captured only yesterday Whilst popping into the nearby town of Maidstone in order to collect some goodies from a well known High Street Photographic Store. As soon as I was the above I wanted to capture it, it instantly put a smile on my face, and reminded me that its was worth getting out of bed for, even though it cost me later on. I hope you will enjoy this rather minimalist submission.

Very enjoyable indeed, years ago i used to have photoshop and was a wizz in using backgrounds for photos, this would have been a perfect one to use...

A well composed image Nathan. But you should know 'light rain' usually means a downpour!!

A simple image that says it all about April in the UK. I have been drenched to the skin by several of the light showers forecast this month.
