For this week the Sepia Saturday Suggestion is this photograph. Hmm.
Yep, it's an umbrella and a rainy day. Well, in this part of the world, those two things are only hazy memories. For the past few years, we have been experiencing the worst drought since records have been kept.
So let's look for the Umbrella's sunny cousin, the Parasol. We'll see how many of those we can find.
To start off with, here is a real umbrella, and in good use.
If any more umbrellas surface in the LOST GALLERY shoe box, we'll include them too.
In the meantime, here is The Parasol.
Of course there is still one place you see the parasol still in use: The Beach.
But of course they are often much bigger and are called "Beach Umbrellas" now.
Carmadie lived on the edge.
Only a half hour earlier, her luck had changed. She won her watch back in the alley craps game. And then her shoes.
By the time Boswell showed up for their date, she had even won an umbrella and a hat that weren’t originally hers.
Carmadie would remember this alley for a long time.
Okay, pull on the Wellies and deploy the 'brollie and slosh on back to Sepia Saturday and maybe you'll find some really rainy days!

THE KIDS It is always a mystery how a photograph of any of these precious children could end up lost or abandoned. Here are a few. You will probably say "Ooh..." at least once.
