We need an umbrella

Colorful Umbrella Art Installation These candy-colored umbrellas suspended over an Águeda street are present rain or shine. Installed by an as-yet-unidentified artist portuguese design studio ivotavares, the unique canopy lends a zany feel to the cobblestone Portuguese road. Flickr photographer  recently shot these great photos and she writes “In July, in Águeda (a Portuguese town), some streets are decorated with colorful umbrellas. I felt like a kid, amazed by all that color!” She calls it Umbrella Sky.

    I love the picture here. The quiet of the street, the simplicity of sun shining through and giving the stroller a rainbow overhead. Lovely. Portugal, on my list.

  4. Oh I’ve seen this pic. I love it and can say that here in Vancouver we desperately need streets like this!
