Colorful Umbrella On Railroad

Colorful umbrella on railway track

The colorful umbrella was open on the railway track

Shot at Da Nyin Gone train station in Yangon, Myanmar.

The main part of the platform in the Da Nyin Gone station was covered by the roof. Yet most of the places where the vendors did business were open-air. The sun was strong here. So the vendors working under the sun usually took preventive action. One of the easy ways was to wear a hat, which was similar to the Vietnamese hat called Nón lá. So many vendors working outside wore a hat. Another way was to set big parasol and to work under it.

Therefore, many parasols were open in the station yard. I didn't know the reason why the parasols had the same color combination of colors. And the combination made them like a beach umbrella because it was a common color scheme used to the beach umbrellas in Japan. When I stood on the railway track, I saw a parasol at the end of the railroad.
