Today I found that this pictures has been selected as one of the best pictures for 2009 in Flickr Blog under the category “rain”.
I got really shocked about this and now I’m really happy. The picture was taken with a simple Canon IXY in a rainy day in Shinjuku, which is one of the biggest urban centers of Tokyo.
I saw the lady in the bike from far away and just tried to catch her in the frame. Taking the camera from the pocket and trying to shot as soon as possible. Fortunately I could take this shot.
Thank you for your comments on Flickr and feed back!
