This is very sticky melody! And I think you just begin to murmur this famous song of Frank Sinatra.
This photo was taken in Manhattan (you can see address on the photo) in the last day of my visit to New York.

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'

But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me
'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

Hello Serghei,
A fine photo to watch, really bad weather to experience personally. Only the woman was wise enough to use an umbrella, whereas the man to the right is totally soaking wet. I don't know how you were dressed, but you seem to have protected your camera anyway. I like to watch the expressions and body-language of the persons but there are many other fine details too.
Best regards,

Hello my dear Serghei Pakhomoff
and have a nice time
you have a great inspiration about melody
and here the famous song of Frank Sinatra
simple scenery from the daily life
with the lady and her umbrella trying
to protect herself
have a nice time

Hello Serghei
A simple moment captured with fine framing and balance. though we cannot see the woman's face, she makes an attractive focal point in her colourful dress and with her umbrella. Some of the people seem to mind the rain while others don't. Lovely bg details too.
thanks for sharing and have a great week.

Hallo Serghei,
in einer großen Stadt ist schlechtes Wetter fürchterlich, da ist mir eine kleine Stadt lieber; aber wenn ich an Frank Sinatra denke; (My Way ist für mich sein bester Song)
Ganz Österreich trauert wegen Udo Jürgens, ist gestern verstorben!
Dein Foto ist eine sehr gute Kombination
wünsch dir schöne Weihnachten

Hi Serghei,
Genuine NY scene. Even during a hard rain that city is very enjoyable. Well taken.

Hi again dear Serghei

You get so natsural and casual daily life in the bad condistion, but that is so important. The position of the people is so well balaneced (I do not know this is accidental otherwise you arrnaged?) Anyway nice snap shot!

All the best and have a good day! Takero

Hi Serghei,
Again a compromise :). It is sticky melody. Unfortunately in Warsaw raindrops are falling on my head too, and I do not like to carry the umbrella. Nice street scene from NYC.

Have a nice day

Hello Serghei,

It's really a daily life picture with the rain as killjoy.
A song of Frank Sinatra were we have dance a lot slow-fox, a lovely elegant dance.
A lovely composition and pleasant presentation with excellent colours too.
Very well done, TFS.

Happy Christmas and a prosperous and peaceful New Year in 2015,

Ha! Ha! Serghei, I think people in N.Y. like to have raindrops falling on their heads! Only one person is using an umbrella! It's a great composition of people and their reactions to the wet weather in a crowded city.
I think the signs are important in helping to establish the context of the shot.

Have a happy and peaceful Christmas,
Bev :-)
