I thought this would be an appropriate image to use from my Bumbershoot festival photos.

Thank you Kimi! You CAN buy these...at least you can at Bumbershoot. I was attracted to the beautiful color and structure as well but opted to take a photo instead of buying one!

EXCELLENT colour tones here, Marta - I LOVE all the different blues - and your composition, selective focus AND details are all SUPERB!! :o) I'm sure that taking this photograph was a LOT cheaper than buying one of these beauties, too - LOL!! ;o)

Thank you D!!! Bumbershoot is a festival that celebrates the local music and performing arts scene. It has been held at the Seattle Center every year since I was a young girl (1971). I believe the word bumbershoot is a British term but I'm not sure. It is an appropriate term for the event due to the fact that Seattle is known for it's extensive rainfall.
