I noticed this colorful umbrella giving the ride operator some shade while waiting in line for a ride at Six Flags New Orleans.

Thanks Laura. I don't usually crop my photos much, but I decided the sky around the edges of the umbrella was distracting, so I cropped it in a little. The very bright sunlight shining on the top lit up the underside nicely. #1382487
