Umbrellas, like faces, acquire a certain sympathy with the individual who carries them.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

Bumbershoots and parapluies today, also known as umbrellas. I feel like I could practically do an umbrella series.

Umbrellas are one of the nicer accessories people have invented. Sometimes I enjoy being in the rain IF I'm carrying an's a win-win. :-)

All the works today are great, but the first one actually made me smile.
