Fifth Avenue in the Rain

Yesterday it was nonstop rain! It was pouring down and really windy as well. But I managed to get some photos yesterday. And I managed to get drenched doing it. This photo was taken from a moving bus. Drive-by shooting as I call them. Something I started doing many years ago because I was impatient to get where I was going to take photos. I love auto focus on digital cameras. But overly sharp or focused photos are maybe overrated at times. This photo was taken with manual focus to achieve an intentional blur. That's what the day felt like.
