Some Shady Business




I've noticed some very chic parasols around here lately. I think it's great way to escape the sun on these scorching hot days.

I'm pleased to announce that a few of my Paris Rouge photographs are now being featured on My French Life!  Please go have a look.

Love umbrellas in a photo, esp if they are as well done as this one! I followed your link, too; wonderful exposure for your book. Congratulations!

Every time I see these I think of ice cream sundaes with small parasols....or cocktails! Beautiful.

If someone deserves to be featured in "My French Life", it is you Virginia.
After all your photographs are showing Paris are really a must to see.
And love your parasols and the ladies under them.

I think its a great idea but then I remember its another thing needing to be schlepped

Ok, stupid question dept... is there a difference between a parasol and an umbrella?

Birdman said...

ps I love the colors and your subject today. Fighting off that southern heat.

Great Virginia, these would certainly a hit around here!

Beautious in every way!

I have noticed more and more ladies carrying umbrellas to keep the sun off but not lovely parasols like these. Love the idea - I should get a parasol and a fan and I would be set.

P.S. Love the Paris rouge shots!

Like this a lot. You balanced the light and the shady areas very well. It is common to see elderly ladies with parasols here but the young people don't get it. Mad dogs and St. Louisans go out in the midday sun.

Virginia,I'm ecstatic about making my Bham Daily Photo debut! That's me with the yellow parasol...

And, I couldn't help but take the opportunity to shamelessly promote...

I have always wondered if I would ever land on your blog and there I am, parasol #2. Never leave home without it! These are beautiful shots.
