I've always wanted a clear plastic umbrella so I'll take that one, please!

I am off to Paris in February..... And that is not a joke.
Anyway, I love umbrellas, and in Norwegian it is called "Paraply" that is probably a word we have stolen from your language....

Goodnight from the north!:-)

Is there anything they don't sell at this market? Seems to me I recall seeing mattresses once upon a time...

But it does appear they offer a plethora (love that word!) of different kinds and colors of umbrellas (from umbra, I think, the shady part)...

Sleep well!

I do need an umbrella. A nice strong one that wont break in the wind. Oh how I wish that I could go to the Notre-Dame market on a Saturday.
Two weeks from now I'll be in Prague and I think I might need an umbrella.

Amazing shot, nice market. Umbrellas are useful, but I like the small ones, only for emergencies. With dubious weather always carry one with me.

J'ai aimé le parapluie totalement transparent! Cette parapluie avec marbles (?je ne sui pas si c'est le mot juste) est agréable aussi!

Umbrellas remind me of one of my trips to France. I purchased a lovely black umbrella with red ruffles on the edges in Paris. I still use it--35 years later!!

I think those upside down umbrellas are waiting to collect pennies from heaven. This is a happy shot for a rainy day, CQ.

Looks like business should be good this day.

I love the way the upside down umbrellas have become lampshades. They have a dual purpose!

Happy Friday the 13th!!

Boy ...do you need one this weekend in Wales!! If the wind allows you to put it up.

@ Jacob: there isn't much they don't sell! ;-) You are right about the mattresses!

Dina said...

Fun foto.
It would be fun to have the transparent umbrella and watch the rain falling on you.

They work better when they are not upside down!!!
