WHAT FOUR?

While driving along Horseferry Road in London the other day we saw a great many umbrellas...


What could this mean?


A puzzle! But having driven on a little further, the seemingly random arrangement of brollies formed themselves - like an optical illusion coming into focus - into the figure FOUR...

Quite why the corporate symbol outside the Richard Rogers designed headquarters of Britain's television network, Channel 4, is currently decorate their with umbrellas is hard to figure - except, of course, that all broadcasting companies are finding survival in these difficult financial times pretty heavy weather...

Ah, but perhaps they're acually parasols!

I love your optimism Lisah!
So that's what happens to all the brollies left on the Underground!
offlotom: a particularly colourful umbrella that's too beautiful to be actually used in the rain
