POTD - Umbrella


POTD - Umbrella
©2011 Kristin Corlett

When I set up a photo shoot on my kitchen table the other day, the sun was streaming through the windows. The light was just too bright, even with the sheers filtering some of the sunshine. So I got out my new umbrella to help soften the light. It helped a lot, but it was so pretty with the light shining through that I had to snap a shot or two.  I see a few people who carry umbrellas to shade themselves from the sun, but for the most part umbrellas only come out in the rain.   It was nice seeing this scene all lit up.

Enjoy!

good to know you are not superstitious about opening umbrellas indoors. Really the problem with opening indoors is getting through the door. A big one like that would be a welcome sight in some of the FL downpours I remember.

I find it fascinating that you FOUND an umbrella made of fabric depicting other people holding umbrellas!

Oh! I LOVE that painting...it is so huge in real life, and so very life-like. I miss the Art Inst. of Chicago...one of the best museums I have even spent time in!
