Strange how Droitwich can remind one of Bath sometimes....
Chris: Err..yes Penny

You have managed to remain vertical, while Chadwick was having difficulties with the slippery pavement, Chris.

I do not recall Bill including this thoroughfare in his Culture Tour of Droitwich?
Chris: Your memory is fading Ray.

This could be old age or err..over-indulgence
The fellow on the right looks like he belongs in another picture.
Chris: Indeed so, he escaped from another file Larry
This whole scene could be an artist's rendering, Chris. One of your very best rainy day street scenes.
Chris: That is very kind of you Bev

Absolute fabulous.... LOVE it.
Wonderful treatment. I think the man on the left cam from another era....
Chris: I think he did Astrid, he probably fell out of another photo-file
Are they building a bonfire to keep warm?!
Chris: I wouldn't blame them!
LOL at the comments (don't forget that sometimes your Little Sis confuses left from right and vise versa). Laurel and Hardy do come to mind, so I get the different era. grin
Chris: Yes I understand Ginnie

Oh, I recall to have stood just there in front of the Abbey - also on a rainy day - oh, I recall my teacher- time , too, when the pupils had to do some research about the city according to some questions they got from the tourist office or ... Sometimes they had to ask locals to get the special information - also here in M√ľnster I see hords of pupils strolling through the old city, and sometimes I can help them in Dutch, French or English ... A nice photograph -scene and no bench has been occupied!
Chris: We get crowds of schoolchildren from all over the world descending on us especially in summer months Philine, there are often no native faces to be seen

I like a picture like this where there is a lot to look into and speculate, Chris. I see they have Big Belly Solars in Droitwich, too!
Chris: And big belly persons as well Lisl
If you really wanted to see rain you should have been in Droitwich on Wednesday.
Chris: If that is a form of retro invitation I am happy to give it a definite retro answer..

That chap ion the right seems to be wondering what the group on the left are looking at Tiff. I think they are staring at where the rain has landed.
Chris: I think the bloke on the right has escaped from another part of my computer Chad

Aaargh HDR in the rain!

That said - and it had to be. I like the composition. It is difficult to get two separate groups to work in a photograph. They are like two split pins in 10 pin bowling. Here though the intense inwards activity on one side is matched by the curious connecting stare from the other.
Chris: I'm sure you appreciate the normal rules of trying to produce technically ok pictures are suspended for DROITWICH FRIDAY Mike. I have no idea about what is going on here but it made me laugh when I saw the picture I had taken, the rain being an added bonus
Taking a reflective moment........very nice treatment Chris smile
Chris: A soupcong of twiddling went on here Martin
Nice hdr-y treatment, Chris.
Chris: I followed the example often set by W J Phillips of Droitwich Spa by chucking a bucket of tone mapping soup at it Tom
Someone lost a dime it seems. I like the lone figure. So much to see here, Chris. Very good post.
Chris: Glad you like it Mary
Great sense of depth to this Chris
Chris: You are very kind Sarah - thank you
The outsider. Nice shot Chris
Chris: Thank you kindly John
I really don't care where it is because it is a great image complete with a story to it as well, right up my street, so to speak.
Chris: Ahh - but would it win a competition eh Brian?
Isn't it amazing how much Droitwich and Bath look alike, Chris?
Chris: Err..yes Pauline
A work of art Chris, whet you have produced in minutes an artist would be proud to take months over.
Chris: I am obliged to you Scotia

Chris: That is what it looks like Shane

Lots of splashes of red in amongst the wet
Chris: Such things often seem to enliven pictures taken outdoors Anne

This is like a painting; very pleasing. Are the group conducting in-depth research into a puddle? Perhaps there are fish in it?
Chris: They are trying to connect to the spirit of Droitwich

We, in the desert, need some of that rain...I'm liking the guy to the right
Chris: I wish I could send you some Robbyne!
