ABC WEDNESDAY -'K' is for 'kooky'

Spring is here and the weather is warmer, on and off, anyway. This photo was taken on an 'on' day, along the Sava River, where I happened upon this fisherman. I've always wanted to wear a hat like this....and this fellow had the nerve. A very practical and 'kooky' solution to sun protection.

See what others have done with the letter K by checking out ABC WEDNESDAY.

I don't recall ever seeing one of these before; but hey, if it works! And it certainly is colorful so long as it doesn't scare the fish!

I like both him and his sun-shade. He looks very kind ... another "k" word for you -:)

Not nearly as 'kooky' as once thought. Reminds me, do you remember the line, "Kooky, lend me your comb?"

Either that guy has a very good sense of humor or he was drinking Serbian adult beverages or both!

Actually it fits him quite well. This man seems to have enjoyed being immortalized by your camera too...

A very useful cap I must say, and so colorful!

Tash said...

The amazing thing is that he doesn't look kooky at all but very distinguished. Must be his expression - no goofy grin. Excellent portrait, Bini.

BSquared, sure do! "77 Sunset Strip, click, click!"

I love these hats - so practical and great fun. They bring a smile to everyone's face.

Oh, what a wonderful thing! Keeps the rain off without having to hold a handle - and I bet it would work as a sunshade, too!

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

I've also seen them at sporting event stadiums. Kooky or practical? Maybe both! You captured a great shot of him.

I'd love a hat like this - even if it did scare away the fish. The fisherman looks like fun, too!

how fun great way to keep sun and rain off ones head

XAPT said...

Great photo- I really like the juxtaposition of his dignified expression and his goofy (oops, I mean kooky) hat!

Juliette said...

Totally cool!

Roger Owen Green said...

Not kooky at all; practical!
