Rainy Day People

Yes, it was very very wet today and it felt like ordeal by umbrella walking down Oxford Street! Nearly got my eyes poked out a few times! Anyway the guy with the umbrella stand on Tottenham Court Road was smiling from ear to ear.

Yeah there's a guy in York with an umbrella stand that appears to be the only happy person in the city when it rains. God has it rained today!

I love the picture, even though you can't see many of the people's facing just the stance and hold of the umbrellas, as if their owners are crouched and hiding underneath speaks volumes.

That's a lot of umbrellas! I usually skip them unless it's pouring and I have to look presentable, lol.
I like this in BW, it turned out great.

@clarissajohal I never use them. My gran got me one once at Xmas but as I wasn't used to having one i left it in the pub on Boxing Day. Same with gloves and scarves, i never have them long enough to remember to pick them up!
