What this image actually shows is Robert's attentiveness! I had been working for about 4 hours on a hot afternoon cutting down and digging up shrubs and moving a bunch of plants to make room for a shed we are getting. Robert's poor balance (related to the same issue as his hearing loss) makes doing things that requires bending over a problem for him so he cooks and I do the yard work! Anyhow after he saw how hot and tired I was he went and got damp paper towels and wrapped them around my head to help me cool off!! Of course, being Robert he then saw a photographic opportunity. So yes, they were paper towels, but it wasn't as if he set out to stage it that way for the challenge shot.

Clever idea although I'd have liked perhaps a little more face.

I realize they are probably hard to come by, but fabric like a real shemagh would have completed this photo. Now the only thing I notice is.. are they paper towels?

Is that a paper towel? I don't get it, comes off as kind of goofy. Sorry just my take.
