That is just a very good, classic image of urban food delivery. The rainy night, lights reflecting on the pavement...a night no one wants to go out in and yet...delivery. I always tip a bit more when the weather is crappy.

Cool capture of a cool scene!  I first read it as "Retro Diner" but then quickly realized that it was "Metro Diner."     In either case, the diner, the scene, the image, and the technique are top notch.

Re: Food Delivery

Thank you jj. A physically demanding job these guys do and for minimum wage and tips. Many are recent arrivals to NYC trying to make ends meet and keep their families afloat. Full respect from me that’s for sure.

Thank you Box Man, snapped this rainy scene in 2011. Umbrella in left hand, camera in right. Somehow it turned out okay

Even more impressive.  Jugging your duties and still getting the shot as the torrent lashes against your head.
