Two walkers in the snow

I'm always intrigued by people using umbrellas when it snows. For me, umbrellas are just for rain, but then a bumbershoot IS perhaps practical for snow. Try as I might, I just can't get the smaller walker shown here to carry an umbrella.

Terrific composition. The black against the white is magnificent!

I learned to use an umbrella when it snows and now can't live without it :)

They can make for good photos. I don't own one myself.

Terrific picture Bibi. The little dog doesn't seem too keen to move on though.

Bibi, This is my NUMBER ONE photo of yours. It's gorgeous!!! I love it for a lot of reasons,one is it reminds me of a Palais Royal photo I took if it were snowing. The other reasons are too many to name. The composition, everything.
BRAVO!!!!

Hi, folks! If you haven't checked out the link Belgrade Daily Photo left, please do!

BDP, Oh, that is GREAT!! I think that's really funny...but probably impractical for a dog that likes to run! A real eye-catcher, though!

Therese,the little dog IS Bibi! I use my dog's name as my blogger name! :<)

Bibi pulls the composition of this photo into the perfection ultimate zone. Ditto to the max everything Virginia said. This is my fave of all faves, and I love that Bibi is in it. For some reason, I expect Mr. Tumnus to come prancing out of the woods and into this scene!

Wayne, LOL, spoken like a true Pacific Northwesterner!

Brrrr... I would love this picture more if my heater hadn't died two days ago! I'm so cold!!!

I thought I had have enough of the snow shots..
Not true, this one is just perfect!
You even see the snowflakes on the umbrella!!
Have a good week end,hopefully with some blue sky!

I am with Virginia. This is a classic in every way. You could not have staged the scene any better. I see This as your Christmas Card this year. It's such an evocative image. I wouldn't change one snowflake. Not that we have snow but I admit to using a brolly. Moisture my hair bad combination.

this is brilliant, i agree with the above people, make a wonderful xmas card.

Adore this shot. Of course it's 'made' by the umbrella and of course the little griffon type dog. Superb shot!

Jilly said...

Oh, that's Bibi, isn't it?! Duh...

Had to smile when you used a certain word in the text, Bibi. Not many people outside of this area know what a bumbershoot is or so it seems.
This is truly an exceptional image! A winner on all counts. Even better with Bibi playing her part in it too.

That is a fantastic photo. I just love the composition. I sure hope you frame some of the pictures you take because they are fabulous.

So true. Experiencing Winter every year of my life I've never even thought of using an umbrella unless it's raining.
