My brain often feels frazzled after my trips to New York. It’s simply because there is so much visual stimulation and information to process; and being the visually-oriented soul that I am -I can’t turn it off, I have to take it all in!
But I’ve found a great way to deal with this… These days when I go to NYC I pick a theme and give most of my attention to that. -Not to say that I don’t shoot other stuff too -I do love street photography after all!
So here’s the results of a couple of days in Chelsea with my lens focused on New Yorkers’ hats and head-wear. I love the how varied the use of headwear is; from simple functionality to keep one warm or cool, religious use, showing ones love of a favorite team to those who wear their headwear as crowns of pride, passion and style.
