Consumer's World: Umbrellas

Challenge #1 in the The Revolver series. Hosted by Digital Alfredo, The Bacon Wagoneer.
Challenge has finished
When was the last time you bought a 'good' umbrella? One that could withstand the wind, shield you from rain at various angles, and you didn't feel silly for carrying around? Considering the rainy weather in various global locales this time of year, I've selected umbrellas for the inaugural challenge of this series.

I took this photo in Boston, Massachusetts. I went down there on a rainy day just to capture some umbrella themed photos for personal pleasure. I love umbrellas.
