Umbrella image of the week

April 4, 2009

This picture is by Candice Stringham, a New York based photographer who seems as obsessed by brollies as I am. She collects umbrellas and gets various friends and models to pose with them around Brooklyn and other places in New York that I would have heard of if I paid more attention to movies.

This might be umbrella image of the year… it’s everything umbrellas are to me: colour, lightness, happiness and protection. And you just have to love jumping pictures.

From a Greek carnival. Be warned, you might want to turn your speakers down before you head to the site. I got quite a shock, but am now sambaing round the office.

Okay, I’m not sure it’s been a week but I’ve found another great blog post about umbrella art installations. Sounds like the way to go for the brolly dilletante. I absolutely adore the light cast by these hanging umbrellas from this guy’s flickr page.

This blog is amazing. It charts the progress of an art show for which every artist designs an umbrella of their choice. Here are two of my favourite pictures.

Vintage brolly lady
From a burlesque myspace site called Viva Valezz! Not sure where she got it from but ain’t it gorgeous.

In other news my brand spanking new umbrella site just got its eighth customer, but I’m sure there are more of you out there. I’m just working on getting the international shipping sorted and then I can pop them out to you world-wide!

A wonderful blog entry at Toxel has drawn my attention to some more beautiful umbrella installations such as these…
Yellow Umbrella Tree

Ball of brella

It’s worth clicking on the links too… the working files for that last picture alone are demanding to be adored.

Back after a long break it’s a gorgeous return to a section on beautiful images featuring brollies. This one is from an art project of some kind… quite a few stunning pictures of these blue and yellow umbrellas strewn across Japan and America can be seen here.
