Love your point-of-view and the almost perfectly symmetrical framing. The rain's reflections really work for you here!!!

Fantastic composition playing with the symmetry, and a great b/w. The rain puts good reflections on the floor.
** I have heard something about the paintings on an important tunnel in SF. Have you been there?
