Have you ever heard the expression 'the rain that wets the idiots'? That's what we had this morning. Gentle drizzle that you may think doesn't warrant an umbrella, but without one you will quickly be left soaking wet.
As I fished around for my umbrella this morning I realised I have a small umbrella photo-collection forming in my extensive photo archives.
Pont Solferino + daughter + camera = my happy place.
Here is statue on the riverside by the Le parc André-Citroën.
I think the above statue may have been modelled on our son.
Street artists like umbrellas too.
And when the rain stops, the umbrellas can be closed (Levalet and Hérard).
