Red umbrella

    Newer Older

    View from my front door. As I was taking photos, I heard my neighbour crunching in the snow as she walked past. Can you believe this: she was tottering down the snow-covered hill in high-heeled boots? Only in Japan...

    Daita, Tokyo, 2006

      Ah, but that's so typical of Tokyo. No matter the weather, no matter the circumstances... one has to look fashionable in heels. ^^;

      the high heels, the umbrella, the white hill... maybe your neighbor pictured this image before she wend out.

      Majestic color play! -) The umbrella looks like a bright vivid splash on a monolitic cityscape exterior.

      ;-) here in austria, many tourists climb the hills and the mountains
      with high heels.

      Fantastic! "If you see red shoot it!" Some of the best advice I've ever gotten!

      What makes it so extra great is that the red umbrella and the white surroundings mimic the Japanese flag.

      Only in Japan!!
