U... is for umbrellas

U... is for umbrellas
When one lives in London, you learn very quickly to always carry an umbrella. No matter how warm, how sunny, how blue the sky may be as you step outside - in London, any weather pattern can occur.

But it's no hardship to carry an umbrella with you: the littlest ones can easily fit into your handbag... and so began my love affair with umbrellas!

One weekend trip to Copenhagen was taken in mid-June... summer, one might say. Not this weekend - it was wet, cold, and windy. A look back at my photo album shows the fate of the umbrellas in the city that weekend.


  1. Hi!
    That's a lot of broken umbrella's. I hate it when the wind blows during rain, messes up your umbrella something awful, then off to the store to get another one. ugh! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!

  2. I showed your collection to Preben, born in Denmark, and in his slow post-stroke speech said "so.. made in China in Copenhagen too."
