Wednesday Whim - Under My Umbrella

 all images via Patrícia Almeida via Fubiz

The phrase, "under my umbrella" takes on a new meaning with this amazing umbrella installation in Agueda, Portugal. In an art festival called Agitagueda, photographer, Patrícia Almeida (who also photographed the same thing last year!), has captured this beautiful installation that turns traditional shopping streets into a visual masterpiece. Simple but colorful umbrellas fill the sky and the streets suddenly seem like a scene out of a movie. 

It's amazing how such an ordinary item like an umbrella can suddenly feel extraordinary. This installation almost feels like a "why didn't I see that before?" moment. I would love to witness this in person. If you're lucky enough to travel to Portugal (or even live there now!) be sure to see this installation since it will remain there through the month of July!
