My brolly is black, but I'm thinking of tradomg it in for a more colorful one.

Jacob said...

Brolly must mean umbrella. I have several...mostly black.

Now, of course this is spring. Spring means rain. And rain means flowers. Cover thy head and smile. The sun shall shine again!

I love the cluster of color at the end of the cobblestone street - very charming. My brolly is green!

Bill said...

Nice French street scene.

Woody said...

I have two very boring black ones.

Melissa B. said...

Love the colors and the composition of this snap. Bravo!

Bob Crowe said...

This is a particularly beautiful photo. Of course, it reminds me of a colorful version of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. For the record, one of mine is black and the other is made of multi-colored wedges.

Une tres jolie perspective avec ces parapluies aux differentes couleurs. J'aime beaucoup.

I learned a new word today -- did not know what a brolly was until the picture unfolded. I have a green one with orange and yellow flowers on it. Brolly sounds much better than umbrella which is very boring.

The kids keep on loosing mine so it's an everchanging color!!!

Louis la Vache said...

Mme la Vache had a pink brolly today...
it started raining right after the Easter egg hunt.

No brolly for «Louis». He got soaked...

Olivier said...

ah ah, tu es méchante, il a pas fait aussi mauvais que ça (dit il après avoir finit sous une pluie de grêle sa promenade Dimanche, et malheureusement sans parapluie ;) )

April showers
bring May flowers.

Enjoy!! MB

VP said...

If MB is right we'll have a lot of flowers in May! Black is the answer, but long time ago I owned a bright blue 'cicalone', the once typical Tuscan wooden umbrella, usually in green.

Malyss said...

le mien est transparent, pour mieux voir les gouttes tomber..Il se trouve que j'adore la pluie! Bientôt, ici, une chaleur accablante va s'installer, et nous nous souviendrons de l'eau comme d'un précieux trésor à économiser..

brattcat said...

what a wonderful shot, ciel. my umbrella has several women writers on it (Jane, George, Emily, etc).

Sharon said...

There is a rainbow of colors here!

Sharon Van Lieu said...

Love this composition, Ciel. The walkers with their umbrellas is great - it makes me want to hurry and catch up with the group. Well seen!

EG Wow said...

Black, I'm afraid. But I rarely use it because it never rains in Ontario. OK. I lied. :)

Neus said...

Le mien est bleu, mais j'ai une copine de mon boulot qui a passé là les vacances de Pâques et je ne m'en suviens pas de quel couleur est son parapluie!!(LOL)

Loree said...

I don't usually use an umbrella. It gets so windy here that it's useless.

Bergson said...

j'ai un beau parpluie noir que je'oublie surtout lorsqu'il pleut (ce qui est rare par chez nous!!)
Heureusement j'ai toujours une casquette pour protéger ma longue chevelure blonde

Diane AZ said...

Interesting, it looks more like winter there! My brolly is blue and is about 30 years old (I only use it about once a year.)

Halcyon said...

I had a bright pink one this weekend in Seattle. And my husband had a red Scottish print.

Eleonora said...

Huge, silver and with a big black bull painted on it (stolen at the steakhouse).

Buona Pasquetta!

Black here as well. As far as I'm concerned, a lack of snow and ice is spring enough for now...

BaysideLife said...

Have several, but my favorite is black on the top and the inside has bright blue skies with fluffy white clouds.

tapirgal said...

It's pouring here today. In Oxford I bought a black and white plaid unmbrella, but around here most people don't use them. We wear waterproof jackets with hoods, or we just get wet. What's wrong with us? Although many days if it's raining, the wind is blowing too much to use an umbrella. I think the wind broke my last one, and that's why I didn't have one. Usually I get black ones, but I like looking at other colors.

JM said...

I was about to say something, but Bob Crowe did it first! :-)

Chuck Pefley said...

Living in Seattle I, of necessity, have several ... one particularly large green-yellow which I sometimes clamp to a second tripod when photographing in particularly unpleasant weather. For general use there is a green, purple, red, blue and the ubiquitous black. Mostly I just wear a beret -:)

Glad you asked, right?

lizziviggi said...

I love colorful umbrellas! Funnily for living in one of the rainiest areas of the world, I don't even have an umbrella. 'Hamsters for some reason have a grudge against them and would rather get wet than be seen carrying an umbrella! So whenever you see someone with an umbrella, it's either a child or a tourist.

donnie said...

brollies just blow away here :))

Mon parapluie ? Noir comme mon moral quand je le sors...mon parapluie, pas mon moral..ben, non !
Mon moral m'accompagne partout où je vais et il est camouflage....
