Nervi, in Liguria, is hosting EuroFlora this year. And as the small coastal town is only 9kms from Genoa, so it is that Genoa is celebrating the international event with a variety of EuroFlora-orientated actions.
The most startling, for me, has been the overnight appearance of 100s of brightly-coloured umbrellas, hanging above particular streets here in the city.
Walking to work recently, I discovered Via Aprile's sky-view had been completely filled with open umbrellas. And over days, other streets and ceilings too, have been filled in the same way.
I wanted to capture the display in a different way, and actually ended up taking a series of images. The photograph above was my favourite.
