It's not a black and white picture -- it just turned out that way!
This morning I woke up and saw this picture outside.
The Hong Kong Observatory issued a thunderstorm warning with a few intermittent showers. Luckily by the time I left for work it wasn't raining because by lunchtime it was pouring down. Later there was an amber rainstorm warning that wasn't cancelled until 6.15pm.
What's neat about this picture is that I didn't use a black and white filter -- it was just several shades ranging from white to black.
The next few days will continue to have showers and thunderstorms.... and it's only the beginning of summer.
