While strolling in a historic neighborhood in Cuenca, Ecuador, Fikry Botros noticed this outsize accessory lying near an old hat factory. “Then,” he writes, “I noticed a building nearby with this beautiful old yellow wall and a half-open door. I outfitted my daughter with the hat and asked her to pretend as if she were waiting for someone at the entrance of the house.
To add mystery, I metered the light on the yellow wall to make the inside of the house dark, and I made sure that the hat completely hid her face. Is she waiting? Is she hiding? Is she guarding the house? Who is she? Why this hat?”
