My home state was MADE for this week’s theme and sure has given me a ton of opportunities to get shots of rain this week but wouldn'tcha know, it’s practically sacrilege to use an umbrella where I’m from. LOL We do have them though. I had plans to break out the cute ones the kids have (which rarely get used) and get some REALLY FANTASTIC photos of umbrellas (and probably rain). Can’t really explain what happened however. I only ended up with four (and three of them are nearly the same). None of them were what I had planned but shots I happened upon on my Yarn Crawl over the weekend.
One of the yarn shops happened to be using an umbrella to display some knitted hats.
This one is my favorite. After the yarn crawl my friend, my sis and I stopped for dinner and it was POURING! I used an umbrella. I was the only one. I’m afraid I might just have my Born and Raised in Washington status stripped from me. Anyway, we had to wait for a table at the restaurant so my friend and I went outside to shoot some umbrella pics. I had the sudden inspiration to have her spin the umbrella. Whee! I love to use slow shutter speeds to show motion.
Oh it was so gray and dark and rainy. And my friend didn’t even complain that I made her stand in the rain with an umbrella but didn’t let her put it over her head. What a good friend!
