This shot has so many great little details.

 

I love the energy shared between the two subjects.  They look like they are off on an adventure!

 

I love the paint splatter on his lower  pant leg.  I love the idea of using men’s formalwear on a cute young lady in sneaks.  I love the cut of her hair!

 

This shot that could have been beautiful in black & white but then you’d miss her stunning red locks.

    Lovely shot, and I completely agree, a lot of the energy of the photo would have been lost without her gorgeous red hair!

    I understand that perhaps over the years the photographer behind the lens has felt the need to express his thoughts and ideas. However, when I first started to frequent this website around 5-6 years ago, I was strongly inspired by the images themselves. I appreciate that the simple “blog” format has been kept, but also miss the days when I could look at the images and think for myself, rather than having things spelled out for me. It would be nice to have more faith in these visual works, and let them shine through, because honestly I do not feel that any words can or will do any justice to them.

      So, look at the picture and don’t read the text?

        Its not the same, though. if Scott wants to say something thats fine, however.

      from time to time I like to hear from Scott as to what he was thinking when he takes a photograph, it’s a different perspective and adds to what I am seeing

      I totally agree with this comment and I have expressed this myself in the past. Your photos are great, but please allow them to stand alone.

      Also, I thought this looked like a very cool older couple and then you said “young lady” and it changed everything for me.

        Its very clear she is young from the photo.

      Oh, come on! You can pause on just the photo, and not read Scott’s comments, formulate your own thoughts …. and then scroll down see what he says.

      I hear what you’re saying, but I love Scott’s comments, and comparing them to my own.

      PS: to Scott: PLEASE post the black and white so we can compare!!

    I respectfully disagree with the commenter above. I enjoy hearing what captures your attention once in a while — you don’t do it that often.

    I feel all swept up in their wonderful wake…It’s all in the shoes man!
    And in so many steps they’ll be out of the frame in as brazenly spirited a fashion and as they must have entered it…

    There is something very uplifting and fresh about this photograph. I was immediately drawn to it.

    Hi, I check your post every morning as a ritual before I start my working day. It always sets my mood for the day. I love the inspiration the variety of shots gives. I just wanted to say that I love it when you have left a comment yourself regarding the shot on offer. Whether it be why you took it or why you thought it was beautiful, a texture, a colour or the hint of a detail that I may otherwise have missed had you not pointed it out. Many thanks!

    I vote for B&W, just because then the streetlight would fade into the background. How about you show us both?

    No?

    It’s funny, until I read the accompanying comment I thought this was an older couple.

    A true city environment which a lot can relate too. I like this shot a lot since there is no constraint to it and it could have been completely different if mother nature would have thrown a stronger gust of wind. It’s energy is felt through the bounce of their each step.

    Yes… As you say… They do look like they are off on a big adventure. I was also struck by the fact that I could not detect the ages of these folks upon first glance. That led me to want to look more and to study the details further. Really nice image…thought provoking and one which one could use to create an entire story from. Sort of like that back page in THE NEW YORKER magazine.

    Reminds me of the movie ” An Unmarried Woman”. Nice.

    I like when you comment your pictures, it shows them to me from your point of view. I start seeing hidden beauty. And I can compare your ideas with mine – so it’s like a dialog. Thank you anyway – all you’re doing is very inspiring!

    I thought the paint was dirt or slush from the road.

    The comments are fine when written well. I get easily hung up on mistakes and poorly written text.

    You do take great pictures, though.

    The delicacy of the shoes compared to an otherwise billowing silhouette gives an impression of sensitivity, especially on the cobble that they walk on.

    This photo reminds me of a wonderful NYC day when I saw Christo and Jeanne-Claude walking down the street arm and arm. It was a pretty cool NYC moment. Thanks for bringing that memory back.

    This picture makes me think of Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy.

    In fact, all the reasons mentioned above are applicable to all
    men and women. For convenience,I just eat the same foods everyday.
    The ‘Dukes of Hazzard’ star confidently showed off her new baby-post body in
    a sheer blue star top as she posed with her younger sister Ashlee Simpson at the event.

    What a great shot! You captured NY’s quirky style yet it seems timeless and has this romantic feel that I love.
