PhotoHunt 145: Hat(s)

After a brief hiatus, PhotoHunt is back on Caledoniyya on the subject of hat(s).

Hats are sadly unappreciated in today’s society – I cannot help but imagine how much more amiable it would be if we returned to headgear, men with their bowlers (doffing them as they stroll down the cobbled streets, full-size umbrellas tucked under the arm optional) and women exploiting the wide and outstanding array currently littering the shops.

Moving swiftly from the Saturday morning Wodehouse-ian reverie to today’s subject, the bearer of perhaps the most instantly recognizable head-ornament in British history, Horatio Nelson:

    Nice take. Love the drama silhouettes give to a picture.

    This is the first silhouette I’ve seen on Photo Hunt today. Great photo – the pink in the sky is so delicate.

    Stop by and see my photo hunt if you have time.

    At first, I guess Napoleon. Dang….well, I was close. [Love this photo!!!]

    I’m not a hat person, but I found ‘hats’ around our home that will work for the hunt. Come on over if you can. I would love to have your company.

    This is a great image and I like everything about it. The sillouhette sparks the imagination and the viewer is almost compelled to construct a story to go with the scene. Excellent contribution to this week’s theme!

    By the way, over at my blog I’m starting a new photo-meme for Sundays based on my Sunday Scenery posts. The details can be found on the Sunday Scenery Photo Meme page on my blog. I hope you’ll consider joining the fun.

    I knew who that was before I read it! What a terrific photo! And I agree– I’d like to see a comeback to hats as part of common clothing. I think it made us more civil, more considerate.

    I did Photo Hunters today, too! Hope you get a chance to visit.
