Need an Umbrella?


The CDPB theme for February 1st is "Umbrellas". I took this photograph on the last Saturday before Christmas 2012 from the shelter of the entrance to Clarendon Mall.

Regular readers will have seen this stall before, in June 2010 and more recently in December 2012 where you can see that the stall-holder's main business is key-cutting. He also engraves pet discs and sells batteries and cigarette lighters.

For more umbrellas visit the CDPB Theme page.

  1. There's something comforting in knowing this stall held on through a bad economy. Great set of brollies.

  4. They seem to need them. Those see-through umbrellas reminds me of "the old days".

  6. Umbrellas make a good shield for things, too, eh? We don't see many transparent ones these day; I wonder why. They are nice.

  8. So if you were under shelter from the hall, did you forget your umbrella?

    Happy Theme Day :)

  9. I love these transparent umbrellas, they allow you to look at the rains drop! Love the reflection of the wet ground too!

  10. I guess they keep the key cutting business dry and still allow for light, which I'm sure they need. Good pic for Theme Day!
