After The Rain

It rained cats and dogs almost non-stop from Friday evening through Sunday morning this past weekend. But the rain stopped briefly on Saturday evening when I went to the East Village to meet some friends for dinner. On the way to dinner, I saw puddles of water everywhere and noticed the interesting reflections in them. So I took out my camera and starting taking photos.

This is one of the few photos that came out nicely because of the light from a car approaching and the person crossing the street when I took the photo. The other 6 or so photos I took were not as interesting because they lacked context or movement. I guess every element serendipitously came together in this shot.

So how many photos/shots do you normally take for each "scene" when you are out shooting photos for your blog?
