One of the things I love about photography is that it keeps you present in the moment. You become more aware of your surroundings as you scout for that perfect shot. While standing waiting for the train, I noticed these mosaic hats on the walls of the tube station. Time didn’t allow for as many shots as I could have taken as every 4 feet there was another “chapeau”.
What is interesting to me is that when we lived in New York, I took this train every day uptown, and then back in the evening. And I never noticed the hats. I credit photography, but I am sure that some of it has to do with the years in between. There is definitely something more precious when the days ahead of you are fewer than those behind.
