It took three different gray days to finish this picture. The first day it was raining, so I chose this subject because I could stand in a bus shelter. The value of making a gray day picture is it gets you thinking what exactly makes a gray day. Dark, obviously, but also less difference between light and dark, and less intense color. I cheated here—no way were the actual green, orange, and brown as vivid as this.
