Tophats are cool. When did we stop making headgear in ever-increasing sizes? Actually, pretty much no one wears anything but a baseball cap anymore, which is probably technically a cap and not a hat at all. Lo the days of the Haberdasher.
This image is the first from this book, and leaves me with very little to comment on, except that these photos were taken at the beginning of spring/flower season in a wooded area, so my usual supersaturated cityscape backgrounds will be traded for some supersaturated woodsy backgrounds for a bit. This is taken in the park/nature zone which is a couple of blocks behind my house. There's a lot of these green spaces in Seattle, surrounded on all sides by civilization, but just removed enough to get lost in. I'm all for this sort of thing, though it seems to a small extent that no one else is all that appreciative of it. These areas are usually deserted, sometimes to a distressing degree. I admit I don't spend a ton of time here, even though I live a mere few blocks away, but there are people around me who don't even know it's there. I've mentioned this area to some of my neighbors, people who've lived 3 blocks away from this wooded area for years and years, and they've no idea it exists. The fu? How do you never wander around your neighborhood to see what's there? This isn't some lengthy trek, either, it's literally about 3 blocks. Of course, there's stairs involved, so perhaps that's the reason. People hate stairs.
