A few asked me where come my 2 umbrellas from, they come from my original shot that I took from 2 ladies at the Ottawa Arboretum after asking them to take their photo from the back:

Location: Ottawa, Ontario, Quebec, Canada
Date: 2005-07-10
Panasonic FZ-20
ISO: 100
Shutter Speed: 1/400 sec.
Aperture priority: F/8
Copyright: Yannik Hay
Focal lens: 6.8

Started photography in 1975.
Took photography classes.
Learned black and white dark room.
Did the transition to digital in 2005.
Learned a few post-processing programs and made my choice to Photoshop and Lightroom.

I like to shoot wildlife, birds, macro, landscapes and street photography to name a few.

    Fantastic! I just love this Yannik! One of my favourite Quebec painters is Claude Theberge and this so reminds me of his work with umbrellas! And the contrast of the bright yellow Asian ones against the darker ones is just marvelous!

  • Thank you kindly Joanne
