From what I recall, I was with my girlfriend around Belmont and Broadway just hanging out when a storm was approaching. It got dark and very windy. I think it was early afternoon. Always fascinated with storms, I started taking pictures while people were looking for a place to hide out. A few minutes later, we too ran for cover as it started to come down in buckets along with frequent lightning. I was lucky enough to get a few shots. This was one of them.

Sometimes you look for a photo opportunity and find nothing. Sometimes it finds you. This was taken during a snowstorm just before the afternoon rush. I took quite a few pictures on the Belmont platform that day– but this one meant the most to me. This made it all worth standing in the cold wind and snow.
