Living in Quito means being prepared for the indecision of its climate. It can rain at dawn, and as the day progresses, receive the intense ultraviolet rays from the sun, which hit half the world with force.
Before leaving the house, it is essential to bring hats, umbrellas, caps and any other accessories that help you protect yourself, not only from inclement weather, but now also from covid-19. There is no accessory that remains in this Quito reality.

This photographic essay was made last weekend, in the main streets of north-central Quito. For hours, people’s styles and creativity could be captured for protection from the sun. A folder, a kasa-type hat, a porkpie, a cowboy type or an umbrella paraded through the avenues of the city.
