Government Street at Night

I heard somewhere that movie directors often spray streets with water before shooting because the reflections make the scene much more interesting. Since then I've noticed a lot of gratuitous rained-on streets in films. These photos of Government Street at night seem to support this technique - that wash of color from the lights reflected in the moisture on the pavement adds a lot to these photos.

You'll notice wet streets in car commercials too. It does look nice. These pics are great.

One of my favorite areas of Victoria.

All the reflection also brightens things up. So long as the water is only the street and not dripping off your hair or nose, it's okay by me.
