Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 24 – Hats

Hats are something we often think we don’t see very much of unless it’s at a wedding or maybe if we were lucky enough to be invited to the Garden Party at Buckingham Palace. However, they play an essential part of the lives of many people and if you look hard enough you’ll see lots of them about.

Hugh's Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 24 - Hats

The hat I am wearing in this photo did not belong to me. I borrowed it off a very kind man who had just taken us on a trip through the streets of Venice aboard a gondola. He wanted it back and I did wonder if I should make him chase me to get it back, but he had more tourists waiting to board.

Hats come in all sorts of shapes and styles and, for this week’s challenge, I would like to see what hats you can share with us. Maybe it’s the baseball cap you wear to protect the top of your head from the sun or a thick woolly bobble hat that keeps your head warm during cold winter months? How about a hat you or somebody else wears  at work or a novelty hat you’ve never worn which is stored away at the back of a drawer? Dig out those hats and share them with us.

Want to join the fun? Here’s what you need to do.

1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken of a hat or hats.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 24 – “Hats”
3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a *pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section below so that other participants can view the post.

Many thanks to Ronovan for hosting last week’s photo challenge while I was in the middle of moving house. Ron’s theme was ‘Season and you came up with lots of fantastic entries. Here are the five I have chosen to showcase from the huge amount entered for the challenge.

A Day In The Life, came up with something I’ve always wanted to do and which many of you also entered for the challenge. This is a great way to show how a small part of our world changes during the seasons.

Kim, at Chronic Conditions & Life Lessons, shared some beautiful photos of flowers of the season. What I liked about her photos is that she took them with an iPhone 6. If you look at them they look as if they’ve been taken with a really expensive camera. It just goes to show that I should always remember to take my phone with me when going out.

Ladylee, at LadyleeManila, also shares some spectacular photos with us. Not only that but they are a great variety of photos showing different aspects of the word Season. I could smell the food, flowers and fresh air, as well as taste the beer on offer.

Colleen, at Silver Threading, shows us what each of the seasons mean to her in her new home in Colorado. There’s a great contrast of photos in her post and she’s captured each of the seasons brilliantly.

Leigh, at Leigh’s Wordsmithery, shows off Mother Nature at her very best. Her photos show us what the season of Spring is all about as the outside wakes up and looks forward to another long season of sunshine and warmth.

Thank you to everyone that entered photos for the challenge.

Entries for this week’s challenge are open until Monday 9th May 2016. Have fun!
