Flickr photographer Patrícia Almeida recently shot these great photos of a wonderfully whimsical umbrella installation using her iPhone and camera. Like something out of a fairy tale, the umbrellas look almost like they’re magically floating in mid-air. As she writes, “In July in Águeda (a Portuguese town) some streets are decorated with colorful umbrellas. I felt like a kid, amazed by all that color!” Love this kind of outdoor art. (Bonus points that it provides nice shade for those strolling along the street!)
Perhaps the filter on these photos by Patrícia Almeida make these even more eye-catching, but we are showing you this because we think its a great idea for a public art project. In the town of Águeda, Portugal, colorful umbrellas are hung over promenades, giving your walk an interesting hue and something quite lovely to gaze up at. And look at how cool the shadow effect is on the ground!
