Occasionally I see umbrellas placed on the lawn in front of a local church we frequently drive by and I never have my camera when I see them, or if I do it’s not the right time of day. (I know it’s a cardinal sin for a photographer not to always have their camera on hand, so I’ve been making a concerted effort to bring it along “just in case”.)
A few weeks ago, there they were! It was perfect timing because it was late afternoon when the sun was dipping in the sky, and I managed to get a few shots. They were so colorful!
I’ve tried figuring out why the umbrellas magically appear. It’s not holiday driven…at least not the typical holidays the states observe, but it may be Catholic-driven. Even though I went through the Catholic school system, I’m not catholic and don’t remember all the holidays. One of these days I’ll figure it out. Perhaps I need to stop in sometime and ask! There was no one available to ask when I was there taking the pictures.
