What a beautiful moment you captured with the mix of colors and textures – the silky skirt, rough granite, spiky heels..combined with the sense of movement. And, I must add that woman #1 has amazing legs (probably from wearing heels around Milan).
Love the Lartigue French Riviera shots – so beautiful and so stylish, very “Great Gatsby”. One of the things I love about your site, Sartorialist, is that – as people comment – I do see hints of some of your influences in your photos (Bruce Weber, as someone commented on an earlier shot, et al). You have made a beautiful artform out of a mass-market, ephemeral and potentially crass phenomenon: thank you.
(You also daily make me want to transplant myself from Sydney to New York. Dammit.)
