An amazing and most unusual piece of Art (tag needed) dear Suzi. I have had to look this up as I had never heard of these umbrellas before! A lovely series!

Warm hugs form Shropshire where we have had a little rain at last, Amelia

How fun! ...and a great shot, too. Did you hike up the hill and get some shots,too, Suzi?

Many thanks, oronbb, kasiulowa and brezza. Christo and Jeanne-Claude have done a lot of their stunning exhibitions in Europe, brezza, as you know, as well as many in the U.S. I am grateful to have seen this umbrella display personally, the memories fresh after 20 years (O:

I must get the slides out and perhaps do more scanning, dear Amelia - I might have more worth sharing. Seeing the videos (thanks again) reminded me of shots I'd taken at the time. Amazing after 20 years, your mind remembers what your eye saw through the lens. Glad you got some rain - we're still hoping for some - skies are beautifully blue today. Happy hugs, dear friend (O:

Just fantastic as are some of the other works of Christo! The yellow umbrella's make perfect contrast with the landscape and sky. Liked!!!

This is really cool, Suzi. I saw Christo's packing the Reichstag in Berlin, and I went to 'The Gates' in Central Park, but I haven't seen or heard of this one. I wish I could have seen that with my own eyes. Love this off-the-wall stuff that's just good for the soul...

Cheers, --michael
