This is such an amazing picture. Reminds me of the film Schindler’s List. Powerful.

Can you follow her around for the next 20 years or more and photograph her? Great shot. Just terrific! Really strikes me.
August 9, 2012 at 8:22 pm
Lovely! I totally want to know if she has bangs. Cute cut.
August 9, 2012 at 8:23 pm
Oh la laa! What a little lady!
August 9, 2012 at 8:28 pm
Such a sophisticated pose. Adorable!
What a beautiful and Romantic shot! Definitely tells a story!
August 9, 2012 at 8:51 pm
LOVE THIS PICTURE!!! Everything about this little girl is amazing…the hair, the pose, the dress…adorable!
So glad you post pictures of children because they’re some of my favorite posts of yours! I love how children wear clothes; clothes never wear “them”. It’s style at its most pure.
August 9, 2012 at 9:00 pm
Perfect attitude and confidence.
August 9, 2012 at 9:37 pm
adorable. nice photo!
August 9, 2012 at 9:42 pm
somehow this picture reminds me of a fellini movie.
August 9, 2012 at 9:44 pm
That pose exudes more confidence than a precious little darling like that should have. Amazing photo. She will be a force to be reckoned with in 15-20 years!

This has to be one of my favourite photographs of yours, the pose, the girl’s haircut, her dress, the sandals, the lamp…the arches…love everything about it!

小小年纪 却沉着得大气 赞！
August 9, 2012 at 11:27 pm
I love that this picture tells a whole story, the way she’s leaning against the lamp post is priceless, clearly observing something very interesting just out of the shot.

This is such a precious picture. Lovely and romantic. Also, I’ve been rocking the same haircut she has since I was about her age.
August 9, 2012 at 11:58 pm
Scott- Have been loving the black and white, but this shot is simply wonderful. It is ageless; it could have been taken 50 years ago! Thank you!
This is timeless.
August 10, 2012 at 1:19 am
This is beautiful. Really enjoying the recent influx of black and white photos!

wow! great capture!
August 10, 2012 at 1:43 am
She’s got it. Scott, you’ve got it. This young lady has got style without probably even knowing it. You always capture the essence of style, which essentially resides in your attitude, not in what (or who) you’re wearing.
August 10, 2012 at 2:17 am
Wonderful! That’s such a gorgeous shot.

Everything is perfect about a child,but this photo is really amazing!A lovely memory…Μπράβο!
August 10, 2012 at 3:19 am
I really like the pose of the little girl with Porta Ticinese in the background, amazing!
August 10, 2012 at 3:21 am
What an awesome shot. It´s so beautiful. Love it :D

August 10, 2012 at 5:59 am
Moving, almost shocking. Wonderfull. A book within these limits would do justice to the photos. Reminds me of Sander & Kertesz, though very different from both. The quietness and tenderness of Kertesz, directness of Sander. Masterpiece.
August 10, 2012 at 6:01 am
I can see a lot of sass in that pose!
Great! I love this picture, so cute!
August 10, 2012 at 6:07 am
What an amazing photo!
August 10, 2012 at 6:13 am
Beautiful photo! Little girl is too cute!
such a poser, lovely
August 10, 2012 at 6:17 am
how cute is that! you have an amazing eye!
August 10, 2012 at 6:37 am
Amazingly beautiful captured moment. Worldclass photo as usual!
About a year ago I watched a documentary about your work. It was very interesting.
You’re the best!
August 10, 2012 at 7:36 am
Terrific shot indeed! She’s so small, but it’s such a mature pose.. As if she knows exactly what she’s going to do in the life that lies in front of her.
August 10, 2012 at 7:54 am
Wonder what she is pondering……..

Ohhh this is so sweet!! My boyfriend told me a few minutes ago: “did you see today’s photo on The Sartorialist? It is so cute…” and he was right ;)
August 10, 2012 at 9:29 am
really captures the moment.
August 10, 2012 at 10:19 am
That is too adorable. I love her pose, it’s so grown up seeming. It’s like I’m looking at her when she’s a woman, but thinking about her when she was little girl. The black and white also lends to it.
August 10, 2012 at 10:25 am
Awww simply Love!
I so look forward to your daily snippets, they have a way of putting a smile on someone face. This shot is a perfect example, thank you for that!
August 10, 2012 at 10:30 am
“Reminds me of Schindler’s List”: you post but “Don’t Look Now” (an infinitely cooler movie), you don’t. Had no idea that Holocaust Victim was “a look”; ridiculous as it’s self-important.

A lovely picture!
August 10, 2012 at 10:54 am
What a wonderful choc ! If this little girl were brunette, it would be me at the same age. I recognise the hair cut, dress and sandals.
Perfect shot in black and white (j’adore !)

August 10, 2012 at 1:21 pm
posing already :)
August 10, 2012 at 1:53 pm
Is it just me or does Scott have a certain special something with his children shots?
August 10, 2012 at 2:36 pm
Cute. Love how the little girl is leaning onto the lamp post.
August 10, 2012 at 2:41 pm
this is the cutest. this kid hasn’t even hit double digits and has already mastered effortless cool.

Such an innocent little cute girl! And she looks even smaller compared to the huge street lantern !
August 10, 2012 at 4:00 pm
For a minute i thought I was looking at a vintage 1950s photos of an Italian child. You almost never see street pictures of children alone these days. It’s the times. A parent is lurking in the background, protectively.
Case in point: I’m thinking of a 1940s-1950s pic of a young boy running from the bakery with a French baguette ..and he’s alone. I daresay he and his family lived around the corner…but you wouldn’t let a child do that now. Ever. Sort of sad..the lone child street portrait is quite compelling. Shows him/her as an individual, not just as an extension of a parent or a caretaker adult.
August 10, 2012 at 4:29 pm
She is kind of playing (probably unconsciously) a grown-up attitude, which is in this case, so cuuute! :)
Playing…let’s that be the theme! :)
August 10, 2012 at 4:40 pm
No coy pigeon toed stance here! No self consciousnes shy stance. Just a strong confident women in the making. In comfortable stylish sandals, and that perfect stylish no-nonsense hard haircut and cooling classic summerday dress. She’s ready for a fashioable day in the park of rough and tumble fun and all takers, or a hard day of shopping with Mom.
Anyone that can lean on a lampost like with such apblomb Well,Perhaps we are getting an early peek at a womens weightlifting olympian 2020/2014….or maybe a strong,sensible future Italian Prime Minister.
Confidence is everything!
Appreciate that photo is from back in these crazy days, and it has the advantage of creating such mystery, telling us a different story than if it were from the front.
Love too so much Sott that it is in B&W. Beautifully captures timelessness of the whole scene.
And thanks too for these wonderful streert by street tours you have given us all over, but especially of Milano! Really makes one feel part of your wonderful world!
August 10, 2012 at 7:26 pm
Reminds me of the Brassai photos.
August 10, 2012 at 8:44 pm
There is something very mature about the way this child is posing and supporting herself against the pole. It makes the photograph intriguing. Nice shot Scott!

To capture something “in the moment”, it makes me feel and think. Love when a picture can do that. Nice!

August 12, 2012 at 4:53 pm
I love the confidence the girl in the photo exudes. I would love to see how she grows up!

TIMELESS A perfect “petite madame”. Black & white makes the photo look like something out of another era. She can take care of herself, no doubt about it!
August 14, 2012 at 11:20 pm
I love this shot to no end.
It almost make my eyes teary…
It reminds my of my moms old black and white photos when she was just a little girl… There’s something so naive and mature at the same time about it……

Timeless indeed and beautiful.

This picture is just BEAUTIFUL. I love fashion blogs, but the way this one combines vintage pics, with fashion pics, and of course urban scenes in black and white is awesome, and this one in particular held my attention for minutes. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful pic!!!!
