These 10 photographs show the various uses that hats can have. Firstly as decoration. This huge rural shed was covered with hats, most of them well worn, some worn out.
In Australia the sensible always wear head protection when out in the sun. Good protection against skin cancers and melanomas. The problem I find is that they make my head so hot so half the time I throw sensibility to the wind and just wear sun screen.
That is my choice though and babies should always be protected.
I don’t know that this classifies as a hat. My husband and I argue over this kind of dilemma. Like shoes, I take hats to cover all types of head covering whereas he would say a hat is something with a crown and brim. In this case I just wonder at what on earth I was thinking going to a fancy dress supposedly as a skeleton and my swimming hat my skull. How embarrassing. I actually went out like that.
Fancy dress is always fun. I haven’t been to one for ages. Note to self – plan a fancy dress in the near future. The hat below is almost invisible as it melds into the fur and my own hair.
Party hats and loving memories of all long gone.
