These umbrellas lined an arched walkway leading to a charming hotel that I stayed in. Fancy going to all that trouble for my arrival!
Baku is a windy place and a few days later a very forceful pounding turned most of these umbrellas inside out or else removed them from the scene completely.

A colorful note: eggplant colour is a brownish-purple shade, named after the eggplant, or aubergine as it is called in much of Europe.
The fruit was named eggplant after being discovered by English explorers in Asia – the ones they found were small and white and looked like eggs. As this suggests, aubergines come in many colours, even if the ones we usually find in a supermarket tend to match the Crayola interpretation.
