Do you have a photo you’d like to submit for Photo of the Week? Please send it with your name, a one line bio, your website, if applicable, and a brief description to angelanallman (at) gmail (dot) com.This Panama hat maker can be found in Cuenca, Ecuador on a street called Tarqui between Mariscal Sucre and the market near the river.
He wears a soft, perpetual smile which consumes his entire face – eyes, lips, cheekbones. Through my broken comprehension of Spanish, it was apparent he took great pride in the hats he makes and demonstrated how with great patience.
I just had to buy a hat from him.
