Rain isn’t the most pleasant weather to shoot pictures in, but for the shy street photographer – or those just starting out – it can be a great distraction as your subjects are generally so busy trying to get out of it they barely notice you.
For me, this street picture works because the eye is led around the frame in a natural way, from the bottom to the top, and has plenty to look at along the way.
Although the man in this image is only a small element in the frame, and is also in shadow, he is arguably essential to the shot and brings it to life.
