Why is it that I cannot look at an image of a post-rainy day in Vancouver without seeing a scene with a noir-ish aspect — where all the men in their raincoats have slightly seedy motives and where even the most innocent-looking Chevy has a somewhat shifty driver? Perhaps it is the distinctly low-saturation colouring of the scene that came with the (Kodachrome?) film popularly processed  at this time?
