U is for

UMBRELLA

Unbrella
.
Jeg valgte umbrella for ukens bokstav. Kanskje ikke så rart siden jeg bor i Bergen. Som en ekte Bergenser har jeg nesten tatt det som en selvfølge at paraplyen den måtte være oppfunnet av en fra denne regnværsbyen. Så feil kan man ta. Paraplyer brukte de allerede i den gamle Egypt.
På bildene er der Bulle koser seg under paraplyen en sommerdag.

I live in the south western part of Norway. Bergen, my city is well known as the rainy town of Norway. I always thought that the umbrella was invented by a fellow citizen. But I was wrong about that. Read about the umbrella's history here.
Anyway. If you live here in Bergen you must have an umbrella.

Det regner i Bergen

Det regner alltid i Bergen... eller gjør det det?

It is alaways raining in Bergen... or does it?

Eller gjør det det?

Morsomme Umbrella bilder! Har med en jeg også, selv om jeg ikke er fra Bergen...

reader Wil sa...

Nice umbrella and nice little girl! When we were in Bergen in May, we had beautiful weather apart from one rainy afternoon, when we had forgotten our umbrellas. Jeg liker alle dine bilder! Ha det bra!

GAWO sa...

Uten regn er Bergen ikke det samme. Det SKAL regne i Bergen ... sånn som nå... men ikke hele tiden :-)
Du har en topp U denne Uken. Fine bilder.

Jeg har hoppet av ABC`n ... tor jeg da. Nå er det Fotosafari for meg, og det er like gøy.

me ann my camera sa...

Nice U choice and a rainy theme with a surprise ending!

ellen b sa...

those are great photos with that umbrella!! Fun

Pernille's ting og tang sa...

Vakre "regn"-bilder og et nyyyyyyydelig barn! En kjempe-U med andre ord!

Lurer på hvordan jeg skal få oppleve regn i Bergen. Som jeg har sagt før, så har jeg vært der mange mange gang. Sommer, høst, vinter og vår. Men aldri opplevd regn. Føler meg snytt for noe her. Hahaha.

Jo du jeg er nok 50. 50 i kropp og 18 i hodet. Hahaha. Har ikke helt skjønt at jeg er fylt 50. Tror jeg hadde en slik "utenom kroppen-opplevelse" gjennom feiringa. Hahaha.

Umbrellas are good for a rainy day or the Sun.
Great post and fun photos.

U is Under scrutiny.
Come visit,

Herlige bilder av Bulle under paraploksen der. :)
En sjarmør han.
Blir i godt humør her inne på bloggen din. Den er super! :)))
Dropper U`en også jeg....
Tror jeg har meldt meg Ut av alfabetet. ;)
Vil blogge etter lyst og inspirasjon akkurat nå.

Scared me there! I could not read it. Cute post.

Granny Smith sa...

Umbrellas can be very nice if a cute little girl wants to take an occasional break from the sprinkler. Nice photos.

Neva sa...

Cute choice!
Mine is up here!

Paulie sa...

I chose the same theme because it always seems to be raining here too. Come see mine.

Patty sa...

It looks like the child in the photo is having fun. Very nice post

photowannabe sa...

Cute idea and cute son too. I have lived in my new house a year and i finally found my umbrella last Saturday. It does take us a while to unpack some things... :)

Deslilas sa...

Do you make a difference between a "parapluie" ( for the rain) and "ombrelle" (for the sun) ?
Nice set of pics.

ArneA sa...

Very nice photos.
First I thought you had required Bulle out in the rain for the photo. Almost made a concern message to "Barnevernet", but due to the smile and a Wider angle I found out that he only needed to chill down after Holland´s goals, or was it Sweeden´s victory last night

Blue sa...

What lovely fun umbrella photo's.

RuneE sa...

Vårt "Byvåpen"!

Kelly sa...

A charming photo! You need an umbrella here all the time too lately!

Ackworth Born sa...

We wouldn't have minded Bergen's rain so much if the taxi hadn;''t been so damned expensive!

david mcmahon sa...

The second shot perfectly captures the texture of the umbrella.

nonizamboni sa...

Unical picture of Bulle

I was born in Cherbourg, a rainy town, famous for their umbrellas and for a famous movie:"Les parapluies de Cherbourg" de Jacques Demy !

Dragonstar sa...

Beautiful photos Petunia. I'm sure it doesn't always rain in Bergen! The umbrella obviously has a very long history.

mylittlephotonook sa...

Ha ha!
Där lurade du mig allt!!!
Gud så fina fotografier du tar!! helt underbara....

Helena sa...

Why didn't I think of unbrella? LOL! I have two good ones but never thought of it. I had trouble with "U".

Excellent post!

(thanks for the visit to mine!)

:^)

GAWO sa...

Jeg overrasket meg selv i kveld og ble med på leken allikevel. Var så sikker på at jeg skulle droppe hele bokstavleken, men så følte jeg meg litt lykkelig her jeg satt, og kom på dette bildet som jeg liker så godt. Håper min U kan bringe lykke til flere enn meg. U`n henger den veien for at den skal fylles opp og så flomme over. Ellers så står den ofte den andre veien og drypper litt på alle. Hvilken vei som er den "rette" kan bli et stort diskusjonstema. Det ble det i min familie

Suburbia sa...

Lovely happy photos!

Alan sa...

Umbrellas are a handy little invention. We keep one in each car, one in the house, and I have one at work, too - just in case. During the summer it can storm almost every day at times, so it pays to be prepared.

marlow sa...

umbrella is such a simple and an usual thing, that we need everytime, great idea

kRiZ cPEc sa...

lol, I am more attracted to the girl than the umbrella in her hands

Gordon sa...

A creative fun post; great photos too.

Aileni sa...

Incredibly happy Umbrella, that.
The second shot is particularly good.

Nydia sa...

Such a cool post, Petunia! I almost posted about umbrellas as well, but ended up posting about something else! If you have a chance take a visit to mine.
I just loved these photos, he look like having lots o fun! :)
Kisses from Nydia.

We share the bumbershoot today, Petunia. Thanks for the wiki link, didn't think of going there. Very interesting cultural histories.
