The art of the put-down
On my first day in San Francisco, I was amazed by how quickly the weather changes from beautiful sunshine to torrential rain and back again. We have changeable weather in the UK, but not this fast.
Anyway, so taken was I with one particular downpour, which was pounding the pavement with relish, I took a photo. As I did, a local couple, cocooned in anoraks and hunched against the rain, walked past. The woman, without turning to the man, said: "They all's photographing it... They all's tourists."
