      Flickr photographer Patrícia Almeida recently shot these great photos of a wonderfully whimsical umbrella art installation in Portugal. Like something out of a fairy tale, the umbrellas look almost like they're magically floating in mid-air. As she writes, "In July, in Águeda (a Portuguese town), some streets are decorated with colorful umbrellas. I felt like a kid, amazed by all that color!" She calls it Umbrella Sky. Love this kind of outdoor art. Bonus points that it provides nice shade for those strolling along the street. Update: According to the Daily Mail, this installation is an initiative by the council in Agueda, Portugal and is a part of an art festival called Agitagueda. In addition to those photos, here are some by Diana Tavares. Gorgeous, isn't it?
