Thank you so much for all your comments, Ron, Jenn, Pablo, Peter and Sandy!GrinGrin

I was having coffee after the rain at my neighborhood coffee shop and decided to pull out my camera because the rain made the sidewalk pretty shiny. I started shooting the feet of the people running up and down, everybody trying to beat the rain that was coming back. It is rainy season here. It rains several times a day every day and this schoolgirl passed by at a perfect distance. I did very little cropping to this picture.

Halsman was a genius, I think I was lucky. Smile

Having had an inspirational photographer at our camera club last night to seeing this,
I applaud you Marian - an image with the story left to our imagination.
You have filled in the scenario but if not I wonder what we would have thought?
Excellent mono - with the reflective surface of the wet road.

Wonderful contrast between the legs in smooth socks and shoes against a hard, wet and textured pavement surface. B/w works a treat with this image.

Dear Colleen, thank you so much for rewarding my picture with your preference.
I am glad you found it worth it of recognition. I still believe I was very lucky to capture the girl wearing a traditional's nun school uniform. It is becoming very rare in an era of jeans and polo shirts.
This is awesome! Smile

It might turn out to be a new line of images for me...It's raining again, like the song says.
The city becomes chaotic and I tend to lose internet connection.
Otherwise, I love the sound of the rain on the rooftops and the smell of wet soil.
