I couldn’t agree with you more. This photo reminded me of an archived photo, http://www.thesartorialist.com/photos/on-the-street-cynthia-manhattan/. I practically drooled over this photo. I love Fashion and while Trends, for the most part, serve their short-lived purpose, I will forever and always embrace and swear by THE CLASSICS. Classics transcend through the seasons, even more so in the archived photo, with the pairing of a classic white button down and black slacks. Then, to ice the cake, a pair of neutral/nude oxfords, adding even more visual appeal. I’m going to stop here before this turns into an article.
Totally, totally agree, Dee. I appreciate your “article”, lol.
Mr. Satorialist is doing an amazing job of catching “naturalistic fashion” (*my* term) this season in the US. And maybe, “fashion” is indeed leaving its forced necessities behind itself. Let us hope so.
I love how you’ve managed to get a “runway” shot at either late morning or early afternoon with no one around. The concrete is washed out to allow for the subtle blues and greens and the vibrant yellow and red.
P.S. Scott, I’m sure you’re a very busy man, but I was recently going through your older posts and saw that you responded to a question posed in the comments area. I then thought how special it would be if you did that every now and again, not necessarily to a question, but just a response to a few comments made. Just a thought.
I don’t know if this is something you would be willing to do, but it would be really interesting to know what lens/settings some of these photos were taken at. This photo is so crisp and lets in tons of light, the sidewalk is basically pure white, but the subject is not over exposed nor does she appear discolored.
What’s going on – your BEAUTIFUL pix getting better n better? Or have you so influenced us that the entire planet is improving its style? I do suspect that is happening even here in Huonville, Tasmania. Or have you just opened my eyes?
