Red Umbrella

My brother went to study abroad in Germany last spring and while there took a weekend trip to Berlin with his friends. During this weekend trip he met a Canadian girl who was also there for just a few days of vacation and… I bet you can guess this part: they fell for each other instantly. He’s already flown to visit her in Winnipeg twice and this is her second time to visit Seattle as well.  Is that a romantic story fit for Valentine’s day or what? : )

I took these photos of them on Alki Beach, which might be my very favorite place in Seattle to take pictures (and is also the place I took one of the early rolls of film on my canon eos rebel, if you remember that far back!). That first photo is best viewed large so click it!

  1. That’s a really cute story. Enough to make me envy your brother.

    It’s almost as if you gave them that red umbrella to contrast with everything. Very clever, O’Connor; carrying around a bag of props.

  2. wow, that first photo is STUNNING. their story is well-suited for Valentine’s Day. quite perfect, actually.
