Liftoff!

Walking around in Shanghai's heavy rain (more like dodging it), I noticed this bicyclist wearing a bright red bike-adapted poncho. When he turned the corner and headed right towards me, I knew I could position myself to get a good shot. Little did I know that the just when I clicked the shutter, another cyclist crossed the frame heading the other direction, with a yellow poncho!

 

For a moment I thought the yellow-poncho cyclist had ruined the shot; that I had missed it. But once I peeked at the LCD, I knew it was a keeper.

 

Complete luck, but couldn't be happier how the shot turned out.
