As a fine art street photographer I look for beauty in everyday urban life. On a bright day in Los Angeles this umbrella and the lady carrying it caught my attention as she stepped into a dark shadow. Interestingly, after I took the picture I decided to show her- which is a very rare move for a candid street photographer but one I do from time to time. She loved it and couldn't believe that an absolute stranger would have taken the time to create this in an improvisational way. She was quite moved.
Thank you for your consideration.
