Chinese people love red .... it must bring luck as do numbers like 7 and 8 .... (they try to get license plates with these numbers in them).

Today Canada celebrated 143 years of being a "country" ..... big celebrations everywhere, tens of thousands of people - and I was one of them. Sorry, but I did not manage at all to look at your images but will catch up tomorrow!!!!
Thank you so much for all your visits and comments!!!

Tout a fait d' actualité , avec les chaleurs que l' on a , , excellent et j' adore le rouge;-)))

good morning, adele ; )! love to let my eyes get lost in the striking "regularity" of the umbrella design: all those straight lines crossing each other and running parallel a fascinating sight! and the luminous red looks very alluring! would be so nice to have a huge red umbrella to sit under and hide from the heat, and someone to sprinkle water on you all day ; )) hamburg is a tropical island these days! for tomorrow they forecast 36 ℃! hugs, sabine. p.s. congratulations on canada's 143 rd birthday!

Das nenn´ ich mal Architektur :<) ein Künstlerehepaar hat ja in China auf einem Reisfeld viele davon aufgestellen lassen -Bauwerke also :+)

Sally Dunn, 2.07.2010 at 9:29h

Interesting that they favour a particular colour and numbers, and what a good colour to choose. Marvellous perspective of this wonderfully structured umbrella/sunshade. I bet this one wouldn't blow inside out in a strong wind and rain like all our umbrellas do here!!

Frederick Mann, 2.07.2010 at 9:58h

happy birthday canada.. (you are still very young... but a delightful country.. I always enjoyed my short visits there....

more red is not possible

Mark Billiau., 2.07.2010 at 10:36h

Das ist wunderschön und ich hätte diesen Schirm jetzt auch gerne auf unserer Terrasse. Wie Sabine schon schreibt, es ist heiß in Hamburg...
Ganz liebe Güße !

Ein herrlicher Bildschnitt - ein toller Blick auf das Herzstück des SChirmes!!! Das rot ist wirklich Klasse - es leuchtet richtig - kenne nur die kleinen SChirmchen, die früher immer die Eisbecher zierten! Genieße den Tag!!!!
