My $50 umbrella

I find it amazing that after a very windy day here in the city, people just toss their broken umbrellas on the ground, sometimes close to a trash can. They're everywhere. The wind whips through the streets here like a powerful wind tunnel. Gusts will instantly turn your fancy umbrella into a broken inside-out tulip shape in seconds. Here are some results the morning after a very windy night. These were all shot within a 100-foot radius on 34th street in 3 minutes. Imagine how many broken umbrellas are lying on the streets of NYC after a windstorm.
