This is one of the traditional crafts that Chiang Mai is famous for.
Its really interesting how they are made. To start with you have to pound the bamboo to a paste to make the paper for the umbrella and then you need to dye it.
Obviously some are on a bigger scale.
Then the paper and the frames are combined and they are left in the sun to dry.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
I am a teacher of Economics and have worked in various schools in Europe & Asia. One of the things I love doing is getting out and about with my camera.
