It’s the first of the month, City Daily Photo’s Theme Day. February’s theme is “Umbrellas.”
I don’t care for rain umbrellas. If they don’t turn inside out they become shields and I feel like I’m walking a battering ram. Where we live people don’t seem to use rain umbrellas; a hood will do. And sun umbrellas? By the time we get sun in spring and summer most people seem so starved for vitamin D that they’re almost counterintuitive.
This is the kind of umbrella this Pacific Northwester longs for on the first of February: the little paper one on tropical drinks of garish colors with dreamy, sun-kissed ingredients. The kind you get when there’s a white sand beach nearby, splashed with turquoise waves, and the air’s warmed up to a balmy 80 degrees F. Yep. My kind of umbrella right just about now.
