Raindrops keep falling on my head

It has been raining since yesterday, and everything is wet! :(
update: San Francisco has issued a flood warning for this week because this rain has broken the city's record from previous years

I took this picture by standing as close to the water drops as I possibly could without getting my camera wet. It turns out that with a high shutter speed, this position gives you enough time to capture the falling drops.

“Black & White Tears” – A very beautiful 2D pic! Seen it from both the angels as if water drops are falling from the ceiling and as if drops are dripping towards a black ditch.

Jammie: you're quite right about the feeling/ humane-ness of the photography. They really do tell a story - each of us might hear a different story notwihtstanding. That is true for all works of good art - they mean different things to different people, and something to all people but the most insensitive ones.
