Tribeca through the raindrops

No, not an attempt at Pointillism in post ;-)

Waiting out an afternoon thunderstorm in my hotel room
overlooking an inviting slice of Lower Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood…

A panorama of loft buildings, lush green roof gardens, and wooden rooftop water tanks that I had
admired since arriving a couple of days earlier and shot in “literal” fashion (*) during several times of day…

This time, I thought I’d just let the tele-lens focus on the raindrops hitting the window
and let the vivid palette of the Kodak Ektar-100 film in my EOS-630 suggest the rest.

A little story about that afternoon and a great tune ;-)

    I like this picture through the window full of raindrops. It really reminds me of a work of pointillisum. You created a little work of art. Well done, Steve.

    It looks like painting. The photo releases a new view of Tribeca. Good idea and realization!
