Umbrellas on a Sunny Day

Tonight I was looking at some pictures from a trip to Hangzhou, China that I took almost five years ago.

I found some pictures that had a theme, so will share them this evening.

Here are Umbrellas on a Sunny Day.

Umbrellas, West Lake, Hangzhou China, Sunny DayA colleague and I had been in Shanghai working with a new product and on our last day took the train to Hangzhou to visit West Lake.

It was a very hot and sunny day and there were a lot of people walking around with umbrellas.

I always like taking pictures of people with umbrellas, so I ended up with many opportunities.

Umbrellas, West Lake, Hangzhou China, Sunny DayI really like this umbrella. It has a beautiful pattern and the color goes well with the dress that the lady is wearing.

I also took quite a few pictures of sculptures. Perhaps someday I will also share some of them.

We had to be careful of the umbrellas while we were walking. Not something you usually think about on a sunny day.

I think that this lady is not using her umbrella for the sun. You can see that it is a bit windy and cold and it is probably raining hard in the sculptors imagination of this scene.

I hope you enjoyed these umbrella pictures.
