Award Winner | Photo of the Day | April 09, 2012
On one rainy day while waiting for a train I happened look down from the platform and noticed an interesting stripe of the zebra crossing which was newly painted. I took out my camera and waited for somebody to cross the road using the zebra crossing until I found one that formed a nice contrast of blue umbrella against the vibrant yellow of the newly painted zebra crossing. The crisp colors were also helped by the drizzle in the evening which removed all the dust and haze that might linger in the atmosphere.
