Photo Hunt #24: Hats


Photo Hunt #24: Hats, originally uploaded by airam94564.

2008 Memorial Day Weekend Roadtrip Series takes a break to give way to Photo Hunt.

This week's theme is pretty simple and easy, if one has photo of hats in the his/her archives. And I have one. I took this while attending the Strawberry Festival over at Watsonville, a couple of years ago. I found a stall selling hats; I did not buy one, but I took a picture of them. I had really no reason to snap this, well actually I was hoping I would find use for it in the future. Today is that time. BTW, when I snap this, Photo Hunt was not even in my radar.

This shows I like to photograph random shots of almost anything.

Happy Photo hunting. Have a pleasant weekend.

It's a wonderful photo. I love finding uses for old photos in my stash.

I agree with you that this week's theme is nice, simple and not too mentally taxing!

Happy weekend.

Carver said...

That's a great shot. The hats are so crisp and attractive stacked like that. I love hats. I guess that was obvious from my shot of a few of mine.

Sue said...

Great pic of the hat stall :) I like to use older photos too when I can for the different themes :)

Liz said...

Have a good weekend.

I think that was a very worthy photo to take, even without this theme in mind.
Happy weekend to you.

I bought a hat at the Clare Show about four years ago. It has now been replaced by a more fancy Akubra. Very useful in this climate.

Those white hats remind me of my uncle aubry. He had one like it and wore it ALL the time.

I don't remember exactly when but there is a Hat's Day in New York. You should see some of the truly creative designs some of these folks could come up with.

Love the shot!
