Umbrellas, in Midtown

Rainy Night
Photo by myself in Midtown.

It rained on Friday, and the forecast for the weekend is much more of the same. Most New Yorkers carry black umbrellas, but there's sometimes a smattering of color.

On windy days, umbrellas are useless. You'll encounter heaps of broken and discarded umbrellas on the sidewalk, tossed by their frustrated owners.

This is beautiful and reminds me of a David Hockney painting somehow.

Really nice! The green light on the wall, the red light on the umbrella and the reflection on the street. You really capture the feeling here.
