Sunny Day Umbrella - Florence, Italy

One warm summer's evening while on vacation in Italy my husband and I made the trek atop a popular look out in Florence called the "Piazzale Michelangelo." The view and evening light was simply spectacular. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a brightly coloured umbrella. Instead of cropping it out of the picture I included it in my composition as its beautiful colour and size somehow mirrored how I felt about this sunset ... happy.
