    Another Rainy Day in Nagasaki, Japan. This is a view of the main street from a tram in Nagasaki on a rainy day. The tram is vintage and yet retrofitted with modern ticketing equipment. No conductor is on board any more - only the driver. It seems to rain a lot in Nagasaki and the rain in Nagasaki was even made into a popular song some years ago. Thanks to Nat Geo Editors Monica, Jeanne, Matt, Christina, David, Marie and Ami for the EF! Matt & Ami, your comments are very much appreciated!

    I love this angle and how you composed this moment. The timing of the person walking across the street is just perfect!
