Socially Distanced 86

By woolybill1
High Street, Durham. A different take on the popular overhead umbrellas picture.

Yesterday's abstract from Durham was indeed a manhole cover. The things are commonplace but this one stood out in the strong, angled sunlight. Its pattern is repeated Vees alternating with inverted Vees.

Thanks to Walt for placing a User Award on Socially Distanced 75 and to everyone for recent votes and comments, all greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking.

I remember those brollies from my visit last year: I didn't think of looking down at the shadows!

Brilliant.

You could play a version of hopscotch using those shadows...as long as the sun shone, at least...

Brilliant use of pattern and repetition, Bill. As Dudler points out, it pays to look down as well as up.

I have a similar shot (in the thumbnail) - but it was taken in the toilet block in Auschwitz Birkenau

Well spotted and produced, Bill. Getting quite common now, the umbrellas above a street. York has one as well in the Coppergate.
