    Love this: well balanced top and bottom, a dapper cap; the black and white of the photo furthers the sense of retrospective style….

    So dignified. The upright posture would make any jacket hang really well.

    i love this photo. the shadows are beautiful, and the contrast between the geometric lines of the ground and the organic shapes of the shadows/trees in the background is very interesting to look at. not to mention that the man himself is a wonder. the look on his face is heart-warming and the wrinkles on his face and hands are signs of a life well lived (then and now). lovely.

    And I hope to look as debonair as this man! Especially in the northern regions, Milano, Venezia, Trieste Udine etc…the older generations always paid so much attention to thier own detail!

    Love it!

    Ciao per adesso!

    Scott this is really one of the best shots you’ve done photographic vise since I started following your blog one and a half year ago.
    I love it! It’s so full of feeling and something I can not put my finger on. You’re amazing. Congratulations.

    Sart, I’d love to hear what you said to this gentleman. And, how you asked him to pose for a photo. He looks so relaxed and comfortable.

    You must be charming as all get-out!

    I love how you get people to pose with “posing”…

    i think this shows of you photographic skills more than anything. his postiure, the shadow, and the sun on his face. but then again this man looks to have lived a must beautiful life. 10 points, for sure ;D

    This is so sensitive…
    Well I’m a sucker for pictures of this kind. Not only the style, or the choice of not publishing it in colours, but the theme is so charming!!!!
    Beautiful, Sart!

    That jacket is eternal,the essence of civilization for all seasons. Plus the heart and beauty of a lifetime in its splendour, candour,dignity.
    Thank you for the great images you offer us everyday.

    this could almost pass up for an ad campaign.. not only it looks good but “feels” good as well.. it has such a subtle impact..

    the image of the man reminds me of cartier breson’s approach to capturing the humanity of a subject in a fleeting moment.

    He achieves what style aspires to: effortless sophistication and grace. S, thanks for your diligent “good eye” and shutter skills!

    If you were 18-24 and a girlfriend you were madly in love with just dumped you. This looks like a good guy to talk to.
