NYC in July: 85, with showers

Theme: "My Visit to New York"

#1: Empire State Building, seen from inside a cab heading downtown on Fifth Avenue. It's hot and cloudy/misty. The spire looks as if it's disappearing in the clouds. Raindrops start to fall.

#2 and 3: Got out of the cab, standing at the intersection of 14th St. / Fifth Avenue, all of a sudden the floodgates open... if you don't run like hell, you're soaked. Mind the camera, too!

#4: After about 10 minutes, the shower stops as suddenly as it began. People come out of the shops and diners where they looked for shelter. Clouds are still looming over the city but it's so hot the streets are dry as cork again about 20 minutes later...
