    Rain makes everything so dramatic. Even though it's uncomfortable to take photographs in bad weather, it gives us a good opportunity to capture the different moments. During the monsoon season, weather is extremely hard to predict. At the time, I was eating lunch at a street café. Suddenly it started to shower. I borrowed an umbrella from a stranger and ran out into the street. Although I was wet through and through, I was able to capture this fantastic monsoon scene.

    You've captured the relentless downpour in this busy city street. The yellow taxi is a bright light in this dark image and works well with the drenched richshaw. You know what they say, bad weather makes great photos.
