Steeled Against The Rain

The February theme for those of us photo bloggers in the City Daily Photo community is "Umbrellas" and I was on the hunt for a good shot. It is hard taking pics in the rain when you are balancing your own umbrella so instead I present this steel woman which I spotted in a downtown gallery. She looks ready for any downpour that  happens. And I love her shadow!

It's been a gray summer around here, it's rainning now, a yellow umbrella would brighten the day! ;-)

Great shot! And I too like the shadow. In the middle of winter it seems umbrellas are too much with us.

Very clever, RedPat. I should have been expecting an artistic interpretation from you.

Well captured. Why stand in the rain when you can be in a comfortable gallery. Smart thinking.
