It’s not. This is the scene Lynn U. Miller photographed — stopped completely, a safe distance away, with no cars behind — at the Cross Highway/North Avenue intersection tonight.

There were no filters either. Her windshield was wet, and the intriguing “look” comes from the glare of the lights.

    It’s very French-Impressionistic!

    Lovely.

    Can’t remember … who was that painter who did the light filtered nighttime rainy-snowy Paris street scenes? Lautrec? Maybe it’s more Gaugin?

    Ah well, either way, this image stirs up art history in me!
