    This is the first of these photos that I have really truly loved…the way the man looked, and the bold shoes along with the black torso (except, of course the bag)…ah! Bien :)

    Dear Sartorialist, you are out-doing yourself here. Never mind the fashion insiders, you are at your best when you are out in the street, photographing the creativity of 'ordinary' people, like this guy! :-))))

    The peg board (or whatever it's called) is genius when flowers are inserted!!

    Great, great, pix!

    Gebera daisies are delivered to markets and flower shops in boxes kind of like this to protect their stems. I love it!

    I have been enjoying your blog for what seems like forever, but never have I been so engrossed by a series of location shots as I am by these images from Japan. These wonderful people, with such a fabulously varied aesthetic, really know how to play with clothes, and as usual, your responsive eye has found superb examples for us to contemplate. Thanks to you and all your subjects for giving us great joy.
