    she’s got a cindy crawford vibe, and a great frame, but she’s sooo thin. i’m not quite sure if i’m supposed to be jealous or offended.

      How about neither jealous nor offended? Can we look at Scott’s photos as photos and not constantly comment on people’s body types? Definitely says a lot more about the commentor than anything else. ;)

    I think so many times we’re much more caught up the fashion aspect of your pictures. While this photograph still shows all those aspects, what really shines is your great pure photographic ability. Your awareness to capture such a beautiful essence and moment of life. Nobody could plan or stage such a perfect shot. You just have to be conscious and aware to shoot real life, in this photo you’ve done that masterfully.

    Look at her grip on the handlebars with 3 fingers on the levers. She’s used to ride a motorbike.

    Dans la circulation lourde sans aucune protection, elles sont folles ces Françaises, mais tellement belles.

  82. Radiates Strength

    October 12, 2011 at 10:33 am

    She’s a nubile beauty, with a touch of almost lanky.

    Bravo. Good shot.

    I love your work, but what is this infatuation with very thin, anorexic looking women?

    Where are the curvy, Marilyn Monroe, full figured ladies? The short and plump fashionistas?

    What an unfortunate way to waste a talent when the focus is only geared towards one body type. It’s a shame.

    This picture captures such a strong sense of place and person, it’s as if you’ve captured a Parisian story: day into evening, in her strapless black and slightly sparkly evening dress cycling down the rue Saint Honore in Paris… my imagination runs wild! going to a lovely dinner? then some great concert with friends? she’ll pull up on her bicycle, smiling, and have a wonderful evening! This is one of my most favorite pictures here…

  93. Dhppy

    October 12, 2011 at 9:51 pm

    This photo is amazing. The way you could catch her on the fly and center her in the shot just before she became obscured by traffic is wonderful timing. I hope she finds this photo, frames it, hangs it on her wall, and looks back on it fondly well into her old age.

    This is a beautiful photo– the aesthetics of the 60s married to the unhealthy modern obsession with extreme skinniness. The fact that I shudder while simultaneously admiring your artistry and her beautiful expression is what makes this capture so unique and powerful I think.
