The Hague hat market
I was on Lange Voorhout/Toernooiveld by accident and found a small carnivalesque street market for hats. Because next Tuesday is Prinsjesdag, where women are hatted in general, the Saturday before there is a hat market. Also barbers for gentlemen, and even cane-sellers. Check www.prinsjesdagdenhaag.nl
Had a lot of fun though. I wear a hat myself, so everybody held me for the official event-photographer.
Tried my new mini-flash with home-made beauty-dish, and discovered that the flash didn’t operate half of the time. It’s an integrated little removable flash wich get’s powered through the front pin in the hot shoe. Well, it doesn’t connect flawlessly. A shame, because it softens the faces and skin of these beautiful women. Missed a lot of flashes. Haven’t missed a shot though…
