Rain Footprints

A few blocks away is an intersection bearing dozens of footprints in cement. When it rains, water falls only into some of these footprints, and at night, the light glimmers off the top of the rainwater therein. This gives the long trail of 'shoes' a visual and emotional appeal. Someone caught the cement when it was fresh years ago, and walked about as if having fun, which lends a characteristic feature to the street.
