Fanrastic art work and picture. Cheers!
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
Good shot Suzi. I knew Christo's "packages" of great & important monuments but not his yellow umbrellas :-)) Greetings from Italy,brezza
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:
Hi and thanks, River - we traipsed all over and saw as many of the 1760 umbrellas as we could; each view was different and often breathtaking (O:
Very good photo
Best regards from italy
Amazing view dear Suz I'm happy you managed to secure those takes and bring them here BIG like Autum Sunday hugs, Peter

Muy bonita foto,
Just fantastic as are some of the other works of Christo! The yellow umbrella's make perfect contrast with the landscape and sky. Liked!!!
Sunny wishes, Erik
Didn't we talk about that Christo-project some time ago??
So glad to see the pics of it!! I love it!
Happy thanks, Nino, Peter, Romina, MmA, Erik, Patricia and Anne. This unusual and memorable display was very special and I'm so glad you think so too. Your visits, kind gifts and comments are appreciated. Very best wishes (O:
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...
Beautifully said, Michael, and thank you. You would have loved seeing this one - happy colors and whimsical - totally surprising/unexpected. Glad you were able to see other exhibits (O:
gut in Szene gesetzt - schöne Farben -Congratulation
Thanks a lot, Wulfwalker - I am so glad I took these pictures - all fond memories (O:
Like! You can add this picture to the group "UMBRELLAS" as well!
