Hon. mention in Pbase competition: Meandering Life

The Uithof, Utrecht, The Netherlands view map

During lunchtime I go for a short walk now and then. I remember this was a rather dull day. It had been pouring down all morning and had just become dry and somewhat lighter. I did not go far. This is just outside my office, taken from a basketball pitch built on top a bar. When idling there I realized at once the potential of what I saw, with some stronger light now on the wet pavement. Using the long end of my compact camera zoom and benefitting from the constantly changing hustle and bustle of students walking and cycling I waited for the best moment and came out with this one. Most people walking here daily do not recognize it!
