I'm assuming it was a child with a great imagination. If it was an adult female, however, those umbrellas could represent a lot of cocktails!!

I think I'm one of many who broke out in a big smile when first seeing this photo! I'm not sure why it makes me feel good - probably the color and the angles - almost looks like they're dancing! Great find and great shot!

For the last week every time I click to comment on your site another window opens behind and starts doing things! Weird.

Isn't is lovely the way we can see such odd happy things when we have a camera on hand. They look like that plant the sticks up its leaves at sandy beaches.

I love that you are taking a photo of the umbrellas while a girl is painting them. This is such a delightful photo - cheery with the red and calming with the water.
