Wow. Thank you all for these wonderful comments. I was pleasued by this shot (after all, it took me a while in the rain to get someone with such a colorful umbrella) but had no idea you guys would like it this much. Thank you

Perfect category ... all of your work is full of elements of design. I second everything everyone has already said before me. The fact that the umbrella is yellow and black is perfect (any other colors would not have worked as well). A favorite for me.
