a perfect NYC portrait
July 8, 2010 at 4:07 pm
Oh, I just love this photograph Scott. How sweet and innocent. Modern, but the B & W makes me think of days gone by. They are lovely, two models on their day off having fun? What a couple of head turners, beautiful young ladies!
July 8, 2010 at 4:10 pm
I love this so much.. Youth and summer, forever young.
July 8, 2010 at 4:12 pm

Mmmm, black-and-white is cooler than color.
Such a cute photo that captures the summer. x
I love the sense of joy this photo conveys. Well done!
July 8, 2010 at 4:18 pm

July 8, 2010 at 4:22 pm

July 8, 2010 at 4:27 pm
I love how innocence is captured, the contrast between old-time bikes and the cars is great too.

This photo is not less than perfect! ;) Love it!
July 8, 2010 at 4:30 pm
Haha. That's great. It's also a heat wave in the Midwest, and I would love to be riding on the back of a bike right now.

I don't think there's much I can say about this picture that hasn't already been said but it is just perfection. There can truly be nothing better than being young, beautiful and carefree in New York, heat wave or no heat wave. X
July 8, 2010 at 4:42 pm
Such a cool picture.
simple et chic
July 8, 2010 at 4:49 pm
thats why I love New York so much. The happiness
Would love to see this in colour–such a fresh airy moment in the heat of the summer deserves colour. though the black and white is gorgeous. wish i had my bike with me right now.
Could I Have That?
so sweet… makes me want to be in NY right now..
wow scott i really had to comment this time: beautifull picture congratulations
July 8, 2010 at 4:52 pm
Wow, this is already a classic ! Realy a very nice shot. And very sexy. I love the slim legs arround that bicycle, and the 2 chignons (blond and brown). The black and white is absolutely pertinent here.
July 8, 2010 at 4:55 pm
Wonderful shot. And, the black and white really sharpens the perfect geometry of their arms and legs, the motion of the fat tire bike, all against the backdrop of cars on a rack.
I don't know how you get such great shots, but bravo!
Oh my gosh I love it! Especially the bike :).
July 8, 2010 at 4:56 pm
I love this photo…I really want to hang it as a print!

July 8, 2010 at 6:02 pm
This shot is fantastic. You know a picture's good when it provokes a sort of sensation of wanting to be in it… which this does for me. Lovely!

Its lovely! love the idea of making it black-white.

July 9, 2010 at 4:37 am
Very nice photo
July 9, 2010 at 4:38 am
This has got to be the most beautiful photo I've seen in months from street chic blogs!
July 9, 2010 at 4:39 am
Their playful mood juxtaposed to the row of cars makes this a classic moment from the street.

Absolutely one of the best photo's of yours (ever)!!!!
It is so close to masterpiece – still linked to the fashion, but somehow there is a whole story about NYC in this told in a complete / synthetic way.
You are gifted, definitely!

There are no better fashion accessories than youth and long legs. Love the B&W.
July 9, 2010 at 8:53 am
So perfect. Fashion + cycling = wondrous.
July 9, 2010 at 9:02 am
the black and white gives it such a vintage feel

my favourite of your shots, composition is great. what camera do you shoot on? liking the high contrast in the photo.

July 9, 2010 at 9:58 am
This reminds me to smile. They look happy and I feel happy seeing them. Even if it's hot! (especially in Atlanta!)
Juxtaposed with the previous photo, it's interesting to watch how progressively younger age groups adopt more uniform styles. Among the teen-through-early-twenties age set New York and Los Angeles alike, one can expect to find high-waisted denim cutoffs and flowy tees not long enough to be tucked in, with calculatedly "effortless" hair. I wonder when such uniformity might end, as I expect you do as well, Sartorialist.
I love how you captured their energy and sprit!

This is what makes a New York man tolerate N.Y. even at its worst, smile, and thank God to be alive. I just want to hug them! More black and white, please.
July 9, 2010 at 12:16 pm
amazing photo, and that girl looks so pretty and lovely!!
July 9, 2010 at 1:33 pm
The essence of urban summer!
Looks like a photo from a mag, but this is obviously candid – what a catch. Love the b&w too.
This blog is about FASHION and PHOTOGRAPHY and that's why it's SO GOOD (and why I'm not doing my work right now)!!!!
July 9, 2010 at 2:02 pm
Anyone else think of the Pilot episode of "How to Make it in America" with Cam ridin' the back of that Jewish kid's bike?

July 9, 2010 at 10:06 pm
Well, this is an instant classic. I saw this yesterday & couldn't wait to see it again today. On so many levels this is a great piece of art. The balance of tones, composition, the interplay of foreground/background.. the way the curvilinear trapezoidal motions of the bodies/arms/legs playfully mimic the geometry of the cars– haha, OK I'll stop.
Seriously though, this needs to be on the cover of something.. You need to make a calendar. A classy calendar, a collection of your best shots of the year. This one here represents July ;-)
I would SO buy that!!

July 10, 2010 at 12:27 am
I love this photo, one of the best I've seen lately. I'd frame it and hang it in my room!
July 10, 2010 at 12:44 am
as i was scrolling, my eyes played a trick on me and i swear i thought the girl on the bike was sitting on a wheelchair. wow could you imagine what a good picture that would be. i find that there are not enough joyful pictures of people with wheelchairs…sorry so off topic
July 10, 2010 at 12:53 am
As a photographer and a cyclist this a shot that makes me sigh with happiness. Gorgeous girls having fun on a bicycle. Hooray for summer.

Go with bike, is more funny!
July 11, 2010 at 7:02 pm
This image reminds me of adolesence, because it's just so fun. I also love how it's black and white, but somehow crisp, and clean so it's still really modern.

July 12, 2010 at 5:23 am
I like the way that you post a lot of photos of people on bikes, and people having fun and looking sexy on bikes. It goes a long way towards changing attitudes towards bike riding and, in the long run, getting more nasty cars of the roads! This photo's a good one!

Totally, totally charming; one of those great photos that captures more than the individuals depicted but something innate that we feel at a time of our lives–the joy and exuberance of a hot day, totally free, and carefree. Classic
July 12, 2010 at 1:57 pm
Ahhhh, this pictue screams trouble free youth. Poster worthy!!!

this picture is so full of energy….it evokes the carefree spirit of a great friendship in the midst of summer…. honestly one of ur best in my book :)
July 14, 2010 at 2:23 pm
They look like they're having so much fun! I love riding my bicycle but doing it in flip flops always makes me nervous.
July 14, 2010 at 4:06 pm
Great shot! Def captures the essence of summer in New York city!
