Kath Hill

What happens when you wear too many hats? Looks like the guy in Kath Hill’s neat street shot will soon be finding out. The selfie stick and hand gesture fit together and keep attention in on that slightly worried face, and although we get the main message straight away there is still detail there to keep us looking.
