Art Seen: Paper Umbrella in Trees

On Tuesday evening, I fell upon a random art installment right in the middle of a residential area.

There were 10-20 what seemed to be white umbrellas hanging in the trees above the street on Berteau and Damen. On closer inspection, the umbrellas seemed to be made of handmade white paper, and had no handles.

It’s not often that I stop on my bike to take a photo. But this was just so cool that I think I’ll start doing it more often. Make sure to stop and smell the flowers this week!

    I would definitely stop, too, and be grateful I had my camera with me, or a smart phone that takes decent pictures. I don't have one of those, yet.

    Love it!

    It has taken years to make sure I have my camera on me at all times, and years still to learn to take it out of my bag!

    Isn't that neat? Did you ever find out why they were there?
