Hatter's Hat by phil decocco

Available to buy on…

At the Ag Fair on Martha’s Vineyard Island recently, i was fascinated by this unusual and beautiful hat that a woman sported. As she sat on a bench for a moment’s rest, her hat looked especially lovely.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Quite unusual, don’t you think? Reminds me of my camping gear collapsable drinking cups! Could this be a collapsable waste basket? Hmmm? lol Good one, Phil. :-)

  • pete

    It reminds me of a “Cinnabon” Bun(those Giant Cinnamon Buns that they sell @ the mall)so it appeals to both my eyes & my stomach:-)!

  • robynlee
    so true!! Pour a little powdered sugar syrup over the hat and you’ve got it!
