Theme Day - "Shelter"

The October theme for the City Daily Photo Blog community is "Shelter" and I chose these wonderful umbrellas that offer shelter from the sun which we all need even on fall days when it is cool but the sun is really strong. I really liked the fact that these ones say "Toronto's Original" which refers to the Amsterdam Brewing company having opened the first brew pub in Toronto in 1986. They have come a long way since then and you can sample their products at bars and restaurants all over the city.

Also taking part in Good Fences since that is a very cool fence around this patio. Click HERE to see more fences from around the world.

The colour goes so well with the brick background.

That's a nice cool, and colourful, spot!

Such a familiar sight Pat.. The Amsterdam Brewing company sounds like it's doing big business in Toronto!

love the bike-wheel fence!

Umbrellas of all kinds provide wonderful shelters in all kinds of weather. These look like they are coordinated with the colors of the brick, too.

You found some shelter that truly represents your city! Great job!

I would certainly be willing to test their product. Please send two cases of Toronto's Original to the address which I will forget to add below.

Cool theme day post!

What a lovely and colorful scene, and a most Happy October 1st to you!

Simple and colorful, and one of the best kind of shelter!

We definitely need protection from the sun in the last decades. Portugal is known for its 300 sunny days a year; the problem is that we didn't pay much attention to the warnings back in the 70s or the 80s and some of us are now paying for it.

I like the red umbrellas. Looks like a great place for a bite to eat. The fence is really neat with the bicycle rims in it.

We use umbrellas more against the rain here but, rain or shine, you'll find me under one.

Ida said...

Nice sunny day indeed. The umbrella's are so colorful and the fence does look like a nice one.

Revrunner said...

We could certainly use those umbrellas here.

This looks like a wonderful place to wile away an hour or two!

This image is quite lovely in the use of bright colors.

No one likes to have the sun in their eyes! A nice choice for the theme day.

Margaret Adamson said...

I love the wheels as part of the fense

Mo said...

A clever picture to meet both themes

Jack said...

That looks like a good place to sit, but it seems that I have not been doing very much sitting lately . . .
