The Man With The Red Umbrella .......




I saw this gentleman anxiously waiting outside Cartier
at Place Vendome in Paris and just had to capture him
maybe he was waiting for some-one special
I hope she turned up!

This is my contribution to
City Daily Photo's February Theme Day
"Umbrellas"


~  Place Vendome  ~

Grey skies and rain over Paris
 some times this beautiful city puts on a more subdued face
and I am thankful for the many splashes of cherry red
that brighten up the street-scape

That red umbrella is such a flamboyant statement. All too often we just see men with boring black umbrellas. Great capture.

I love the way you have brought the red out while keeping the other colours restrained.

Paris and Seattle skies look amazingly alike these days!! Love your first shot and the red umbrella! Fun to write a story behind that one! Enjoy your weekend, Dianne!!

Paris is one of my favorite places (though I have not had the honor of visiting Adelaide yet) and even rainy days in Paris are wonderful.

The selective colour works well. I tried to do that with mine but couldn't remember how. Must find out.
Wonder why the spam filer isn't picking up those anonymous comments.

If he's got Cartier in that bag Dianne I hope she did she. He looks a little concerned. Hope he kept the receipt.

Wonderful photo for Theme day, the special she may have been inside already buying up a storm.

This photo brings so many memories back to me from my fleeting stay in Paris.

Happy Theme Day :)
