With the recent rain here in new york city it was yet another opportunity to witness the umbrella wars of our streets. With the jagged edges of broken steel tips coming towards my eyes I couldn’t help but ponder how many people don’t pay attention to other peoples space. At the same time it seems the bigger the umbrella, the higher chance I’m going to have to dodge out of the way of a steel tip.
Chivalry seems to have become a victim of a more and more self-obsessed city. Those persons barreling through public with their umbrellas only seems to support this feeling. Slow down a bit and take in your surroundings!
