Glee

Photobucket

This photo is one of the photos taken during the shoot my friend Joanne and I had a couple of months ago. You can see in the picture two laughing women walking in the street with one woman carrying an umbrella. I've been told that not everyone around the globe uses the umbrella during rainy time and sunny season too so I've been taking it for granted. Filipino women don't usually like getting dark. So I have a question, do you use an umbrella when its hot or only when its raining?

Have a fantastic weekend ahead!

i love the candid and lively expressions on the faces of these women, Lay.

i only use one when it rains, and that tends to be the norm here in the states.

i find it fascinating that the women in your culture dont like getting dark. its the exact opposite here, the darker the better. im hopelessly pale and constantly am told i need color. most folks here view tan and dark as "healthy." maybe i just need to go to the phillipines where my skin tone can be appreciated.

Warm, friendly photo of those two! I never use an umbrella when it's sunny - I need some sun rays and Vitamin D!

i only use umbrella when it is raining but sometimes when it is hot i want to use an umbrella but i am too lazy to do it. hehehe some people here in the Philippines use umbrella not because we don't want to get dark but it is because it is just too darn hot! hehehe

Love her huge grin, but I don't think I'd like a shirt that says something right over my tummy! ;D

Definitely only when it's raining. I love the sun! I can use some tanning right now, in fact. I hate it when I have pale areas…

Sigh. I'm losing credibility right here hehe I like the sun, I just dont like the darkening effect it has on my skin, and also I don't like the sun spots it tends to form on my face. But I don't usually carry umbrellas for the sole purpose of putting shade on my head. =) btw, Hilda I posted our photos at facebook hehehe

Layrayski said...
