PhotoHunter: practical


Here we have the most practical of things, an umbrella. But this is an especially practical umbrella.


Note the handle which opens out to reveal a wide leather strap which provides a seat when you are tired.

And the tip has a metal plate to stop it from sinking into the earth while you are resting on the seat.

What you do if you want to sit down while it is raining isn't in the instruction manual :)

"It is not for nothing, either, that the umbrella has become the very foremost badge of modern civilization--the Urim and Thummim of respectability. . . . ." ~ Robert Louis Stevenson in Philosophy of Umbrellas

  21. Great item - wow who comes up with these things, although does that mean you would be sitting in the rain?

  22. That would be an ombrella for me !! at least I wouldn't forget it somewhere if I can also sit on it, lol ! I have an amazing consume of ombrellas because I leave them everywhere !

    Help yourself with the Halloween header, you only have to reduce it to your header size which is 660px and my header 800 px. but that's very easy. If you don't know with whom to do it, just tell me and I send you the html code.
