365 Day 359**

p-мinusTen Nine Eight Seven Six Five Four Three Two ∞ One

Good morninggggg pimp fans! Everyone please give a warm welcome to special guest speaker Sherlock Fedora. Detective Fedora, who has come all the way from Scotland to speak for us, will be initiating number 7 of the p-мinus countdown.
It is simplicity itself... My eyes tell me that you are on picture number 359. Obviously there is a state of confusion among this online community being that today’s date is May 26th, 2010. Yet this very picture of the man with the fedora hat and it’s odd reflection was taken on November 30th, 2009. Hence, you see, my initial double deduction is that you had cheated us when this picture did not get posted that same day. But your method of waiting almost 6 full months has proven wisely dear boy.

Elementary, my dear pimp!

Holy shit! I’ve turned my fedora into a top hat. In the reflection at least.

I think I own like 6 or 7 fedoras, and I’m always looking to add to my collection. Before I started this project, I only owned one. Quickly I began to realize that fedoras, or more specifically brimmed hats, make for fucking excellent self-portraits.

On most days, I would have a pack of smokes and at least 2 or 3 different fedoras with me in my car as the bare minimum ensemble to take my daily shot. In the colder months, I also brought several suit coat jackets just so I could mix’n’match. And there were other on the fly variables that I could change out in seconds with me at all times like type of eyewear, a different t-shirt, etc.

But no accessory really can even come close to the fedora in terms of transforming me back and forth day after day. It adds this element of inscrutability to a photo that is unmet without it.

You know I used to call them “old man hats” when I was younger. Does this mean I am an old man now? I found a couple grey hairs in my hair the other day. Unlike the formally mentioned slight wrinkles, I actually got a little excited about the grey hairs. Not really sure why, but I was.

The shot at hand? I had planned on taking one of my 365 day shots in this conference room with that radical table during the whole project. With only a couple days left, I knew I had to finally bang it out if I wanted that idea to ensue. So I grabbed the babe and went to the office late at night and snapped a few shots. The crazy whacked out reflection effect was thought of during post-edit.

    This is some serious pimpy press-conference.

    I think your stream finally tipped me to the fedora side. I've started to look for one. Apparently it's contagious.

  6. pimpdisclosure 59 months ago | reply

    ah my dear friend, if you only knew how many pimp-o-holics have been swayed to the side of the fedora. Some don't even admit it, some are proud, others are ashamed but still don it. All have 1 thing in common: pimpitus. A disease you catch that makes you want to wear a fedora hat. Think of it as it is to hats that MSG is to chinese food

    This is exactly why I'm really looking forward to the coming weeks. I saw this the day posted - and, as always, I was in a big hurry and couldn't really savor the work.

    So now I'm done pimp. It's official. I have uploaded my last 365 shot. And what am I doing? Relaxing here and soaking in that reflection. Wow. The reflection idea came to you in the editing process. It's brilliant.

  15. S Bavido 59 months ago | reply

    Don't like this one. The reflection is just odd instead of being cool.

  16. pimpdisclosure 59 months ago | reply

    I kind of thought the same thing, almost circus too weird doesn't fit the theme of the photo kind of bizarre in a way.

    But in the end, after that train of thought ran through my head, I liked it more this way than without. Mostly because visually it looks better, and it was fun to do, and it makes the photo more interesting, aesthetically anyway.
