I must admit this photo is a cheat. This was taken last year before I started this photo-letter project but it was this exercise that inspired me to do this self-portrait photo project.
At the time, I had bought a few hats and wanted to get TH’s opinion on which one to keep. I ended up returning them all. Looking back at the photos inspired me to share more about myself with my pen-pal.
I enjoy reading Greek mythology. One of my favorite Greek gods is Hermes, the messenger god. As I understood it, the winged sandals and helmet gives him the ability to travel with great speed to deliver messages. Or perhaps the winged accessories are just symbols or a uniform of sorts and in fact, do not have any powers at all. In any case, I have always liked the look of Hermes.
Hermes is also a French luxury fashion brand whose accessories I do admire especially their scarves.
