The Vintage Red Hat

The Vintage Red Hat
Do you ever find an item so beautiful that you know you absolutely must get it?  Even though you aren't looking for that particular item? Some times I will leave it where it sits - only to go back and pick it up a couple of times to look it over and debate about taking it home. 

Such was the case with this gorgeous red hat.

Actually, It was purely an impulse buy for me. It called to me. I love the color red. The condition and style of the hat were perfect. I knew I wanted to incorporate into a session, but who would want to wear it? I had no photo shoots planned. We were about one year into the pandemic and I wasn't doing in-studio sessions. But I knew I had to get it, even if my husband couldn't understand why I needed one more hat. 
Well, it's been about 6 months since the Red Hat was brought home. Instead of waiting to use it, I decided to put myself in front of the camera today. A bit of lipstick, some pearls, a red velvet wrap draped over my shoulders and a self portrait was created...actually I did create a couple of images that I am rather pleased with.
How do you dream of being photographed?
