My daughter and I went to the Northern California Renaissance Faire a few days ago, and one of the first booths we saw upon entering was this one selling parasols. Judging by the number of women carrying parasols that day, they must have been doing a brisk business.
With temps in the mid 90s and the sun shining bright, these things were a necessity for many people there.
I was attracted by all the purty colors though. All the colors of the rainbow caught in one frame. And, just for giggles, I converted it to B&W just to see what it looked like. That one almost made it here, but color barely won out.
