The light reflects off the roads in the area of Meschansky district, as the weather shows its capability to soak the roads, trees and passersby in a Moscow summer thunderstorm which brought the rain to these streets that hours before were dry.

Now in this late May summer evening,  the streets were under a rainpour. Lightning had been zigzagging accross the Moscow evening sky, in dramatic fashion as thunder and rain descended in a rapid and heavy downpour.


To the left, stairs lead down to the metro subway Dostoyevskaya (in russian: 'Достоевская' ) and in the far left, a theatre continued to display on a glowing electronic screen its event for the day or week.
