i think the frown is key :)

I could not agree more!!!

I think the jeans and the hair are key. Those jeans are so perfect.

Ordinary things usually remain ..ordinary. Only miraculously a few become extraordinary.

Simple yet strong.

She looks like a young Madonna before she became MADONNA

gotta be Bank, right?

That’s why I love photography so much!
May 7, 2013 at 7:40 pm
Your last sentence gets me every time… Ain’t that the truth.
May 7, 2013 at 9:06 pm
The photo inspired my next look.
May 7, 2013 at 11:15 pm
Yep, great photo
May 7, 2013 at 11:34 pm

I remember recording songs from the radio with my casette player, trying to avoid background noise!
May 8, 2013 at 6:28 am
Young, poor and proud as she could afford to be then.
May 8, 2013 at 8:09 am
I agree. Isnt it always the case? That what is ordinary today seems extraordinary tomorrow?
May 8, 2013 at 9:28 am
That was an inspiring comment – thanks!

Is it just me or does she look like a worried Anna Faris?
May 8, 2013 at 10:48 am
Awesome photo. Makes you want to know her and what she is going through.
May 8, 2013 at 3:55 pm
I think with that look, she would have been part of the Rockabilly scene that was happening in London 70/80s. They were a stylish gang.

I tried something like this with my hair the other day and my coworker told me it was ridiculous. Definitely trying it again!!

Well said, I will quote your last sentence if you don’t mind.
May 9, 2013 at 7:36 am
What strikes me, it is the semplicity of her look. She is naturally beautiful and annoyed. At that time, women didn’t need to be too polished, what counted was their personality, their ideas, their anger. I went out last night for a drink in posh bar and there were plenty of beautiful young girls with too much of everything. Not needed, beauty is in your eyes.

Simple, clean and fabulous gallery/slider. Is there any chance I can have this kind of gallery? I’d love to make this kind of gallery/slider for my blog. :)

i needed to read this post and be reminded of this. total inspiration for my upcoming trip to london. thanks.

I want to dress like the girl with the cassette player
May 12, 2013 at 1:06 pm
That is a wary London- “what do YOU want ” – frown, for sure!
May 19, 2013 at 11:02 am
Gorgeous–love her fierce expression. This is perfection right here!
May 26, 2013 at 10:18 am
Photographer was Al Vandenberg, you should check out his other work, the rest of it is rather beautiful aswel!
May 31, 2013 at 3:03 pm
maybe its not the hair, the posture, the knit nor the cassette recorder. Maybe its just the woman
July 24, 2013 at 6:45 pm
The expression really makes this work.

Pretty young girl standing on the edge of a cliff.

Of all the photos, this is the first I clicked on. She looked like she could have been a friend back in the day– or a girl of today, except for the recorder. She is timeless. Would love to know where she is today.
May 8, 2016 at 7:06 pm
Ok, it was the cassette recorder that got my eye. I had the one by Phillips that looked really similiar. When was this fab photo taken I wonder, late 1970s

The original badass.
