I keep using the URL to put in the badge above but I'm unaware about what the letters actually signify. I shall get off this post and directly find out. 

Here are the photos for today - U is for umbrella and V is for visitor, which is what my role is in all photographs posted here, though I am not visible in them. That's because I'm behind the camera, eyes glued to  the viewfinder.

Umbrellas at the White House. Washington DC.

Umbrella climbing up at the Jefferson Memorial, DC.

Umbrellas at the Lincoln Memorial

More umbrellas going down the steps.

At home drying on the landing. Kolkata, India.

On the way to Abby Falls, Karnataka, India.

Batasia Loop, Darjeeling, India.

Pineapple seller. Near Coronation Bridge, India.

Namdroling Golden Temple, Mysuru, India.

Darbhanga Ghat, Varanasi, India.

The Great Banyan at the Botanical Gardens, Howrah, India.

In case you were wondering - an umbrella is an umbrella and not a parasol when it's made from a waterproof material. An umbrella can be used as a parasol, and it is often used so in India. But a parasol can't be used as an umbrella - it will not protect against rain. Now you know which to carry when.  

That's all for today. Hope you've enjoyed the photos. Happy A-Zing! - if you're participating, in the home stretch now! And happy cusp season to you, if you're not!

  1. I have been loving going on this photographic journey with you. Many thanks.

  2. Quite the variety of locations for those umbrellas! Very nice.

  3. Umbrellas make a photo better. It would be a sad rainy day for you if you went out with a parasol.

  4. Hi Nila - umbrellas needed here today ... once again!! A very Useful Umbrella series ... cheers Hilary

  5. I enjoyed your umbrella photos. They do cheer up a rainy day when colorful

  6. Hi Nila - carrying one is bad enough - to get me to chose from two ... never! My thoughts turned to UV for sun rays ... why: I don't know - at least we have some now - cheers Hilary
