Prime Lens - Focal Length Equal Human Eye 2/2

Challenge #17 in the Who Knows... series. Hosted by blosshapperter.
Challenge has finished
Show me your very best picture using a prime length equal to human eye (43 mm AFAIK). A normal prime lens was usually 40-55mm on "full frame" SLRs - in practice, it was most commonly 50mm supplied as a "kit" lens. Building a lens of this focal length seems to be rather easy, there are a lot of very nice and sometimes even cheap lenses out there. Aperture (F stop) and DOF (depth of field) shouldn't matter, but I expect some beautiful examples of (very) narrow depth of field. Please do confine to available light (no flash) and leave any macro shots in the drawer.

Rain For The Plants

31st place
Rain began to fall as I took photographs at the newly opened Parkroyal Hotel in Singapore. The rain was good for the plants housed in the planters installed on a wall of the hotel. My camera was rain-proof but not the prime lens I had on. So this was the last shot before I ran for cover.
