Umbrellas and Temples
It was the start of the monsoon season in Kathmandu, and although I had avoided the rain for five days, my luck finally ran out.
After avoiding most of the shower in a small little family-owned general store, I headed out to the legendary Durbar Square to see what I would find.
Although beautiful temples surrounded me on literally all sides, my eyes gravitated toward these colorful umbrellas guarding these flower sellers against the rain.
The yellows of the flowers and the umbrella clashed wonderfully with the red brick that dominated the square.
About twenty minutes after I took this picture, a host of vendors set up shop on the pavement directly in front of the flower vendors. Apparently, when the rain started pouring down, they had to seek shelter to keep their wares fresh and dry. I guess they should invest in some umbrellas!
