Sometimes traditions are overlooked. One that I’m reminded of this time of year is the sport of hunting. The photo I’m sharing today is that of my Great Grandfather(Pepe)and Great Great Grandfather on a duck hunt.
Now, baring comments from PETA and false assumptions that I myself enjoy sitting in a deerstand at 4AM – I must say that there is something to be said about the tradition of hunting.
Gathering with family, dressed in the garb, being outdoors, preparing & anticipating “the hunt” for days. I love the tradition of it year after year and the sharing of the rituals.
And most of all, I love that the hunt look is back & fashionable for the Fall – a wonderful nod to the classic traditional layers of houndstooth & plaid, wool scarves, and knee-leather boots. Aah, the hunt.
