It was a dark and stormy night ...

Repeat Metering Prohibited
... in Victoria.
What kind of goof takes pictures of parking meters?

If the parking meters in my area were as colourful as this one, I would be one of those goofs.

Fantastic the way you captured the rain splattering! What great patience, especially when people might be watching you photographing a parking meter. :-)

Wait till the authorities goes over on the electronic models with paying by mobil or card then you will think with sadness on these ones.

These meters are pretty much antiques now, so you got a shot of history!

Nice bokeh and rain splatter. Love the colors, too.

Cool shot, Wayne.

No great patience involved, I took 3 shots and one had the splash. In Victoria they roll up the sidewalks after dark and even on a dry night there wouldn't be many people around.

Victoria seems to like it's meter maids (who seem to be mostly men) so I'm not sure they'll get rid of the coin meters soon.

Thanks for the comments.

It's a work of art this shot. Very nice composition.

Love the raindrop splash!!! Well done!!! Much more charming than the new computerized, multiple space machines!!! (they still use meter maids though!!!)
