SEPIA SATURDAY 410 : 17 MARCH 2018
RAIN : CHILDREN : POLICEMEN : NIGHT
My umbrella memories are mostly happy. I'm sticking with happiness even though the photo prompt recalls a horrible time in our past.
In Switzerland with friends. we'd been eating for days -fondues and raclette. It was wonderful but we were stuffed like geese ready to be converted into foie gras.
Saris, steps, umbrellas and rain. It was very hot and humid near Madurai in S. India. We welcomed the drop of a few degrees in temperature. I think you can feel a vibe in this photo that's far from a "rainy day" mood. People were cheerful and nobody was running out of the drizzle. I think they, like us, were enjoying it.
I added the rain using Lunapic.
Lunapic is like a time-sucking trap for me. There are hundreds of effects available and they're easy to try and discard. I can spend an hour or two with a single photo. Last one--a reflection.
This beautiful, moody photo came around on Facebook without attribution.
It was boiling hot in Jodhpur on this particular day. We climbed up
Last, my favorite of all umbrellas, the Indonesian variety. And my favorite Bali villa in Srinigar, a heavenly place to stay for a while.
