"Anybody under there?"

Another night and more rain for the grounds crew of the New York Yankees to deal with. Only this time, in their haste to get the field covered, they thought maybe one of their guys was lost somewhere under the trap. So those humps you see are actually people under the tarp checking to make sure no one was left behind. The crew has performed at a top level in light of four straight days of rain ... and more is on the way for Thursday.

Meanwhile, at the subway station after the game when the skies really opened up and poured rain, this scene reminded me of a famous picture taken by photography icon Henri Cartier-Bresson. Something about water and the right kind of light to make a nice picture during bad weather.
