Lovely black and white with great tones, how late in the night was this, there is hardly a soul about?

@Curly: Hey, Curly. The secret wasn't the hour of night - it was pretty early, I think about 8 PM. But it was Christmas Eve. The stores were now dark and it was time to withdraw with family and friends.

This time of night and this kind of weather are my favorite combination, always.

rainy night are the best for night shot thanks to the reverberation of the light on the ground.
This is a very good example of this rule!

This is superb Stephen!!! What amazing light and details you've managed to capture that convey the mood of this rainy night so well... I'm like being there, breathing the cool wet air! The b&w tone is wonderful though I keep imagining that the color version would be just as enchanting!:-)

to me, it would be super hard to drive at night in the city.... cars, traffic, people, but beautiful photograph!

Read about that hill in several books and have always wanted to see it. I like your crosswalk too.
