Celebrating one year on WordPress with this fine group

“The Tilted Hats”. RPPC. Private Collection.

The first person who attracted my attention was the gent in the bowler, I love the way he tilted his head in the opposite direction of the hat. And then I noticed his friends; the charming one next to him tilting his head too, and the others with the hat sideways or to the back.

I don’t think I have a favorite in this group; they all took a good picture. There must have been a joke or two about how the camera made the tough looking middle one quite blurry, and I think his nose was broken too.

And the front left nature boy with his neck scarf, undone collar and cane reminiscent of a branch. The teen to the front right looks like he was the younger brother of the one standing left.

All in all, a fine Edwardian group who must have made quite an impression! And with them goes one year of blogging on WordPress with 416 posts!

A beautiful Swedish photo studio portrait of three handsome friends taken anytime from the mid 10’s to the mid 20’s. All three are sporting different types of fedoras too. The one with his arms crossed has an attitude to go with the low brimmed hat. Attitude seems to be a theme of its own in this collection. :)

Five buddies, four women’s hats and a stetson

These funny five decided to pose in women’s hats sitting on the grass. All except one with the white stetson. Oh, the large bonnet hanging low on the one to the far left!
