A local business man in our village had some weeks ago a bright moment. ‘What if all villagers start to wear hats on Saturday?’, he wondered. ‘Wouldn’t that be an extra attraction of the tourists?’. He launched the idea of ‘Haturday’ on a local Facebook page, warmed a few friends up, and the idea got shape. Last Saturday most villagers shopping or having coffee somewhere were wearing hats. Also the staff of one of my clients. And of these great personalities I made some portraits. Almost all were published last Monday on their blog in the original full colour format (except the stock photo of Emily who is always wearing a hat). In the meantime I reprocessed the pictures in the way I see these wonderful individuals. The captions tell you their names. BTW I changed the original background of Donovan with one of my woody textures in B&W. For the others Herman’s Beauty Saloon applied adjustable (own) opalotype settings and played with it for a bit.
I change myself every now and then. Which me do you prefer?

This sunbird first looks to the left and than to the right before ‘going on air’; exactly the way I learned to look before crossing a road many, many years ago.
(BTW: My day yesterday: Client ‘complaining’ he’s getting too many customers via Social Media…. AND an enquiry for a photo print from a client in New York, USA; also via Social Media!!!— feeling proud in Stanford, South Africa)
