Catching rain drops

I spend two days in Phuket in February and both days had torrential 15 minute downpours in early afternoon. I was crossing the street as this one started, and had to run back under an awning to protect my camera. As I waited for the storm to end, I started practicing panning photos on the passing cars. When these two travelers entered the viewfinder, I knew I had to get this the shot. I did my best to keep them fixed in the viewfinder, snapped off a series of shots, and then breathlessly checked the shots in the LCD. This was the result!
