Face of the Day – 8.1

Today’s face is a magician’s assistant.

At least that’s what I was told. This picture was taken in Beverly five years ago. At the time I was with Weber Shandwick and we were doing some work with GM. The program was intended to introduce people to GM cars in unexpected venues. We had a fleet of cars – a little Saturn convertible, a hybrid Suburban, a really fun Cadillac, a Buick – I can’t remember them all now and would take them to different events in eastern Massachusetts.

We went to the Bolton Fair, Newbury Street, the big milk bottle by the Children’s Museum, a BC football game, all over. It was a lot of fun and people seemed to enjoy checking out the cars. One of the events was a Lobster Festival in Beverly. It was a raw and rainy day. We had two cars with us – a Saturn and a Suburban – and set them up as best we could at the edge of a muddy field.

I don’t recall if the magician was with us or just happened to be nearby. In either case, he was a friendly fellow whose act (at least what I remember of it) was mostly making balloon animals. This woman was with him and was doing face painting.

Because the weather was lousy and the crowds thin, we all ended up talking – the Weber team and the magician and his assistant. It turned out that she was either a relative or a friend of a relative and had come from Russia. Her role and her relationship with the magician was kind of unclear. She was friendly though, and pretty, and her pink hat was a bit of bright color on a drab midsummer day.

Daily Dozen – Women in Hats

I can’t believe I haven’t done this set before because I have millions of pictures of women in hats. Women have a much wider array of hat styles than men do and I’ve tried to show some of those in this set. I don’t have much more to say except that I hope you’ll enjoy the photos. You might notice there are 13, it’s the baker’s dozen bonus!

Daily Dozen – Men with Hats and Glasses

Today’s set is a silly set. A set that makes no sense. While looking and thinking about the theme this is what struck me. Some are old, some are new (but not too new). Some time I should do a hat census to see how many of each hat style I have. I suspect the baseball cap is number one, followed by the knit, then the flat cap. I’ll need to look into it. For now though, here are men wearing glasses and hats of all sorts.

Daily Dozen – Silly Hat Day

I don’t know, I’m just in the mood for some silly hats. Not all of these hats are inherently silly, but often – and it is certainly true in this case – context matters.

Faces
Go Pats!
Faces
His hat is very small.
Face
My dad in a very fancy number.
Faces
This is my AC Milan hat. It’s only silly because it’s on someone else’s head.
Faces
The hat isn’t silly but the face under it sure is.
Faces
This whole package is silly.
Faces 863
Maybe if he turned it over this hat wouldn’t be as silly.
Faces 781
You’d be surprised by how many people you see sporting this look.
Faces 127
In 1778 this hat isn’t so silly. In 2008 it was.
Faces 38
Silly? Frankly I think not.

My kid is cool.
Faces
This is a hotdog hat. Silly.

Daily Dozen – Don’t be sad, today is plaid!

Let me tell you that some days it’s tough to come up with a theme. That’s why I love it when people suggest them to me. Today no one sent me any ideas so I had to come up with one all by myself. I have no idea why I decided to go with plaid but it is what it is. I hope you enjoy the photographs. Be a pal though and send some suggestions my way, OK?

Daily Dozen – Red Sox Fans

It’s been long enough since the season ended to create a little Sox content. There is perhaps no more ubiquitous symbol of New England than the Red Sox cap. The dropped “r” is a close second but come on, the blue hat with the red “B” is like a beacon. Here are a dozen photographs of fans from over the years. I haven’t limited myself to the classic cap but have a variety here that show the range of Red Sox fandom.
