Umbrella


In Phoenix our umbrellas don't see much rain but, they do get used to protect us from the sun!

Well, here they don`t last that longe.
Looks great to use it like this.

Please send some sunshine over here.

for people like me who park indoors at home and work, I can't remember the last time I carried an umbrella in Phoenix. Maybe 5 years ago.

I got a new umbrella when I left Phoenix for East Texas, which normally gets about 40 inches of rain per year. I've been here almost 11 months and have only used my 'brella twice. Be that as it may, I love random people shots and this one is a dandy!

Well assorted colors perfect for the picture! I don't use any but should probably...

What a beautifully composed picture Sharon, her dress is such a vibrant colour. Thank you so much for the birthday wishes.

Kate said...

A beautiful contrast of colors. Love her dress and the huge umbrella. I LOVE umbrella snapshots and enjoy using umbrellas myself!!

She has her Halloween colors on!

Karen Xavier said...

This is a good shot. Looks like she was shying away from your camera. The color of her dress is striking.

I see these bobbing down the street all the time. :)

Teresa said...

And now I know why!

Great colorful capture of daily life in the Valley Of The Sun!

My first thought was like Randy's comment Halloween Colors. The shadows are really neat on this.

Under my umbrella, ella, ella.... When I saw your great photo, I immediately started humming Rihanna's Umbrella song.

And what with the increase in melanoma, umbrellas in the sun make a lot of sense! Great photo, Sharon!

These red and black look great together, even without rain.

I love this capture! That orange is really something, just like the buddhist monks' outfits in Thailand.
