Barnack's Monthly for November 2018 is Hat, helmet, headwear, or mask.

Recommended Posts

Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 121st Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with more than 340 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme.   Also, thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us!

The Barnack's Monthly theme for November 2018 is: Hat, helmet, headwear, or mask.

This month's theme is any pictures including any hat, helmet, headwear, or mask.  It could be a party hat, a policeman's helmet, headwear made from a scarf, a Hallowe'en mask, a soldier's helmet, hats on Ladies' Day at Ascot, a hat on a dog, a hat on a cat, a high-hat in a drum set, a helmet on a statue, a Venetian mask, a surgeon's mask, a veil at a funeral, a burka, a niqab, a hijab, a Bearskin, a hoodie, a baseball cap, a Fedora, a Trilby, a straw boater, a flat cap, a motorcycle helmet, a welding mask, sunglasses, a fireman's helmet, a cheese-cutter, a Bowler, a tophat, a bride's veil, a cowboy hat, a native American indian head-dress, a Spiderman suit, a Bat-suit, Christmas reindeer antlers, a bishop's mitre, a beanie, an ushanka (Russian fur hat), bunny ears, Mickey Mouse ears, a Yarmulka, a taqiyya, keffiyeh or amama (Arab headwear), a turban, a cricket helmet, a baseball catcher's mask, a balaclava, a witch's hat, a Viking horned helmet, a tam o'shanter, a Baker Boy cap (Peaky Blinders), an astronaut's helmet, a floppy hat, a Mexican sombrero, a Fez - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free!  It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view but it's not compulsory. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's not compulsory just helpful.

The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it!

Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post.

Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme.
