This was a rainy cold day with very few people to be seen. As I stood several levels above ground, looking down at the street below, this person holding the red umbrella came into sight. As I brought my camera up to my eye, I knew this could yield a nice result. I particularly enjoy the red umbrella, with very few other visual stimuli, it takes over the scene and speaks profoundly of a feeling of protection. Be it from the rain or a deeper emotional sense of protection, I love the simplicity of this photo.
The different perspective, looking down, adds an interesting view of the world and is something I’d like to explore more.
