Photo Hunt #79: Covered

16 Apr

For once there is a theme that I didn’t spend too much time looking for pictures to post.  I already knew weeks in advance – when the themes for the week were posted by Ms Tnchick – what I would use for this week. 

Covered heads, wedding going on at the gurdwara in Fremont.  There is a large Indian community in Fremont and in the entire Silicon Valley region.

Covered heads, Bay to Breakers marathon, San Francisco.

More covered heads, Sikh parade, Yuba City, CA.

Here is the home of the PHOTO HUNT.

    Pretty amazing that you had three such awesome photos, all with covered heads. I love all three of them but the colors in that first one are just gorgeous.

    Have a great weekend.

    These are all great shots for the theme. I love the way the first shot looks with all the beautiful and different colored head coverings. The wigs in the second shot are hilarious. The Parade shot is also beautiful. Happy Weekend.

    The first photo could almost be mistaken as muslims in headscarves in a mosque. I have to take a second look around. Good take on this week’s theme. I’m also posting a photo of a muslim with her head covered.

    what a great interpretation of the theme today, very creative and colorful, i love the colorful headrests and the weird switch to the colored wigs.

    I had thought of covered heads because in the military they refer to your cap as your “cover” quite often. Great angle on the theme this week and you definitely got it COVERED.

    These are excellent photos for the theme. I love the cultural diversity that you have pictured. I love the first photo with the colorful scarves.

    The colors of the head scarves are so bright and cheerful – red, yellow and blue hues.
