The subject for this month's theme day, for those of us in the City Daily Photo realm of the blogosphere, is 'umbrella'. Of course, I instantly thought of rain, which led me to think 'Well...it's not the rainy season here'. (That would have been rather pedestrian anyway.) For those enduring a cold and snowy winter, I really wanted to brighten your spirits with a beautiful shot of a colorful beach umbrella firmly planted in the sand along Lido Beach. But, alas, I haven't had the time to be beach bound. So, instead, I offer this pleasant slice of life photo. Lots of restaurants in Sarasota have outdoor seating. Even in the "cooler" winter months here, it's nice to have a table umbrella to block the sun while you're enjoying a meal. This is an Italian restaurant called Salute located on Lemon Ave. in downtown. I've eaten here a couple of times and it's been quite tasty. The Farmers Market was going on last Saturday when I snapped this photo, so it was especially busy. To see how others interpreted 'umbrella' click here.
