The red umbrella also greets travelers at the Hartford-Springfield airport. Projectors cast six large red umbrellas on the wall. Each big red umbrella is made up of thousands of little red umbrellas. As passengers break the light beam, the little umbrellas jump around, amusing passers-by.

how could anyone be 'under the weather' when there is this much fun to be had with umbrellas?
Very cute, I think. Folks up in Hartford probably enjoy this kind of thing in the dead of winter. Well, the kids, especially, from what I see in your photos.
I really like that first photo!
They are so lovely and bright! Superb post, Jack!
Very clever display at the airport. I like your top photo. The red really pops.
LOL...love that display at the airport. Unique!
I was told years ago that the Traveler's Umbrella was, I think, the 4th most recognizable symbol. Of course, McDonald's arches were first. But, I still found this surprisingly impressive.
I wonder what the corporate branding consultants were drinking when they came up with that airport display. I think that clever design will be copied elsewhere with other logos. It is a great way to participate with and engage the passerby.
The kind of thing I love! Not only the umbrella, but the game with light!(I'm still a kid somewhere in my mind..Ü)
I love the idea for the airport! Although some of their commercials get on my nerves. :)
How fun!! And what a great, colorful and fun idea for the airport indeed! I love them! Great shots as always, Jack! Hope your week is going well!
What a clever idea! The kids certainly are amused:)
Great shots~ especially one with shadow the young man ~thanks, namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor) Happy RT ^_^
If I was a kid I would be there for hours! Might still be there for hours at this age - very cool.
I like that low-down shot under the umbrella, looking up at those tall buildings!
DITTY IN RED
Just a pinch of scarlet
To liven up the place;
Just a hint of ruby
Brushed upon your face;
Just a bit of cherry
Dancing round your toes;
Just some sanguine colors—
That’s the way it goes!

Hartford is fun!
What great fun! My daughters would love the light attraction. And Jack, Bellingham suprisingly has three neighboring casinos. I think they are mainly populated with our Canadian neighbors.
You are becoming very arty
That could absolutely keep me entertained for an entire layover. How clever!
What a great idea - Yay! I think I'd like dancing in front of these petit rouge parapluie.
Well that is if no one was watching!!
Don't get me talkin' about insurance... it won't be pretty! Wanna know where I'd put that cute red umbrella? Fish!
There is few things I like more in life than a red umbrella! Love that first shot....I want that pic for my wall!
Now this is a GREAT promotion!
neat technology to do that, your airport trips have shown some interesting scenes!
looks beautiful...lovely captures!
That's a neat idea. I can kids (obviously you did too!) getting into that!
How fun is that!
And then it makes a great picture too :-)
How creative, this is fun!
It seems to me this is sure to make any weary traveler smile!
A red umbrella is always an eye catching object.
Perfect composition Jack!
What a fun post, Jack!
Now, this is really cool!
I really liked it.
