  1. I’ve always been a fan of colorful things. Including good-looking umbrellas. Real nice photo.

    My wife and I were at an outdoor concert a few days ago. There was no prediction of rain, but naturally it did rain. We got good and wet. We hadn’t brought an umbrella!

    1. Thanks Neil! It’s one of my favorites for many reasons. Sometimes it’s fun to frolic in the rain 😉 I don’t know about you, but I always end up getting wet anyway, even with the umbrella.

  2. Great picture. It has a softening impact on the eyes with the colors. To be honest, all I notice is the fact that the girl/woman with the yellow umbrella also has ANOTHER umbrella. What’s her deal? She is wearing a backpack – which probably holds ANOTHER umbrella lol. I am totally doing that look-at-a-person-and-try-to-imagine-their-story thing we talked about right now lol.

    1. lol – somebody else mentioned that, and even though I’d looked at this picture a million times, I had never noticed it. She probably has an overprotective mother/grandmother who says, “You can never have enough umbrellas! You must always be prepared for a bigger storm.” lol

      1. I just copy and pasted my review onto Amazon and gave it 5 stars with the paperback version. I guess it has to go through a moderator or something – because it isn’t up yet. But it should be soon!

  3. Love the little rubber boots… I have an adult-sized pair (yellow with bumblebees on them) to go puddle stomping in the spring. Again, you have managed to capture the very essence of that moment in time. 🙂

  4. Why does the one girl (for some reason I think they are all girls) have two umbrellas? One above her head and one still closed in her hand? She is so prepared for the rain! I love this!
