Or at least look like this is the last place on earth you want to be in. The mother(?) just looks like a tent. A monochrome, shapeless tent. Sorry.

    Wow! I don't generally comment on your photos but this one struck me so much that I simply had to. I suppose it's because most of your photos are utterly beautiful, but so very fantastic and removed from my life that I find it difficult to draw any inspiration from them.

    This photo, on the other hand, is immediately inspiring. Not only is a brilliant example of casual Italian style (yeeeeah, Italian fashion editors in sky high heels look beautiful but they also make me despair), and I feel like I could learn something from each of them just by looking at all the little details they've added to their outfits to give them a little extra interest. From the hair to the shoes, I feel like every time I look at this photo I see new things. A definite favourite! I only wish the photo were even bigger so I could see even MORE details!

    Their poses, their style, their subtle but visible individuality created in wardrobe details are wonderful. I do still think, when comparing Italy to France that French are more "bcbg" and Italians are better in "casual / everyday" elegance / paying attention to be always aesthetically perfect.

    Everyone always said to me before I went to Italy how well dressed people were. And don't get me wrong, they were. In a classic, traditional and tasteful way. But the monotony of the outfits was disappointing. This photo reminds me of that because these folks are wearing what 90% of people wear in Italy. (Puffy jacket for the young guys…check!) After a while I yearned for more individualism. I hope you can find and catch some of that in your Italy photos, Scott.
