Been feeling a bit low for the last week. I think it’s that whole brand new year thing where everyone is all pepped up and ready for anything, ready for a great big change where all the bad times are over and only the good times will be allowed to roll; and then you realise what a challenge that will be and it all seems completely exhausting before it even starts.
Obviously, the answer is one day at a time. Baby steps.
A thing that always helps me when I am feeling down is silliness. Recently I have taken some photos of things that have looked like something else. I’m sure you’ll agree that many of these photos taken in my local neighbourhood look like hats. I had so much fun pairing them up. (I took all the top images and the credits for the images at the bottom of each set are listed below.)
I think this pink flowered eucalypt looks so like a vintage couture hat, complete with ostrich feathers.
This is a building in King Street, Newtown which always strikes me as looking like a German Officer’s cap from World War 2. I am sure that building comes to life at night and marches around the streets.
This is a hat that looks like a cat (or maybe a teddy bear.) It’s not the cat in the hat, it’s the cat that looks like a hat.
This photo looks like two things. It’s a photo of the umbrellas at the fish markets with the Anzac Bridge in the background. I originally had it matched to workers in the rice fields in Vietnam who were wearing those conical hats, but then I saw this photo of Hillary and Chelsea Clinton and couldn’t resist. But do you see it? Do you? The hats look like the umbrellas AND the bridge. Things that look like hats for the win.
