Marshall Wyatt Earp

This is my interpretation of an 1874 image of Wyatt Earp.  I really enjoyed doing this one.   My first thought was that he used the hat as a dare a la “Go ahead, knock my hat off.”  In addition I could not tell if there was a bandana worn under it or not.  Nevertheless, I am learning much which is beginning to apply to my ‘photography eye,’ so I’m looking forward to going back to that medium soon.  The link to my gallery is here.
