I went with my two girls down to Coral Gables. It was raining umbrellas! Well not really. But there was three waves of heavy rain that arrived 25 minutes after we had explored the plaza. Currently, Giralda Plaza is hosting the Umbrella Sky Project. The colorful public art display has hundreds of umbrella hanging over the Plaza. Umbrella Sky is an internationally recognized public art display that has been in Lisbon and Paris - now it has arrived in Coral Gables Miami and will be there til September.

Well, where ever this ends up in the voting scale - if you are in the area or nearby - GO see this! There are some great restaurants in this plaza and nearby...and it is a great place to people watch as well.

My first idea was one of origami boats and curled paper waves (quilling) https://www.facebook.com/ChrystyneNArtPhotography/posts/1911748662253191 But I didn't want to create a scene (cue drum sound for the joke punchline - yeah I know bad pun) so I didn't submit it. Really, I felt it was too much a scene rather than objects thus it did not fit the challenge rules.

This is a known art installation. Photographing a piece of art for your image is 'eh'. I'm not going to vote because I really don't think it qualifies.
