Duncan and I had dinner at Montage the other night, and wandered around the industrial area a bit in the rain afterwards. This shot seemed to be one of the ones that worked.

    Love this. The light and the rain-slicked ties are fabulous. The perspective is scary, even though it looks like it might be an unused track…
