Terrific photo. Lovely girl. The sunlight in the shopwindow on the colorful jars – very interesting and evocative! You are a very good photographer. I like it when your personal comments accompany the shots.
I never commented here, no matter how much I loved the people, the shot, or the outfit. but this time, I find the person, the outfit, the photo, the background, all, stunning. I’m just in love right now.
I usually like dresses like this but for some really I don’t like this at all. Maybe it’s the color or maybe I wish she had on a belt or perhaps her hair could be down. Idk it just looks unfinished to me.
i love the necklace and the shoes. the dress colour is amazing, but i think there is a little disconnect between the accessories and the dress. maybe its the shoulders. but girlfriend is beautiful and the lighting is stunning. it works.
I love the feel of this picture! Late afternoon; lazy summer day . . . her shadow moving on the pavement; the light magnifying every imperfection on the antique window displaying old fashioned candy jars. And her . . . simple and serene; intently looking at you . . . Fantastic Sart!
i love this pic and i LOVE that you are in Brooklyn– especially in Ft. Greene as opposed to Williamsburg or something. What a great, great neighborhood and a really great picture. Keep ‘em coming! and to the comment of the jars of candy; I’m pretty sure that is soap in those jars from Carol’s Daughter.
I feel like lately I'm seeing looks on here that have a more "trendy" vibe. This photo is STUNNING, but from a style standpoint it makes me feel similar to the recent Sao Paolo pic with the flannel shirt dress…very cute, nice and simple, but much less intriguing than the usual Sart fare – anyone could put it together. I like simple, but simple can still be fascinating, and this doesn't really do that.
I see an echo…. her strong shoulders and the straight (shapeless) silhouette of the dress echoed in the candy jars in the window… A beautiful woman who unfortunately looks unfinished and boxy here, a little heel or a little legging could have saved the moment.
this 'tenda roni' looks like she has fallen into the 1989 streets of Brooklyn. The man behind her is well suited for a Bobby Brown video, the bright sun-rayed leaves remind me of my 'back to school' days in junior school, and the red, exposed brick with the stained window glass just top it right off.
"The truth about Roni, sheâ€™s a sweet little girl You could treat her real nice and hold her tight Only tender ronis can give special love A special kind of love that makes you feel good inside."
I rarely comment on this blog (it all feels so… adoring), but this is a truly beautiful photo. Someone asked if the guy in the yellow pants is 'intentional' – probably not, it doesn't feel posed, but that's what makes the shot.
I agree with Ashley: it's the photo itself, more than the elements of her outfit (altho it's all very nice) – it's the way she's standing so serious yet serenely, and then your eye goes to the light in the tree and the yellow in his trousers and the line of whatever it is in the jars.. and comes back to this mysterious girl, in the center. Timeless. It's part posed, true, but it's also the magical accident of chance.
this shot is beautiful b/c of the light, but the woman's ensemble itself is hohum and not inspiring to me.
go down to Red Hook…still in Bkln to satisfy the peeps who want Bklyn shots – but more 'underground'/ progressive and less like a wannabe williamsburg. i bet you'll find a truly inspirational shot or two there.
Nice, but this look always reminds me of a woman wearing one of my shirts (mans shirt) around the house. Like she's trying to be casual and a bit sexy. Appropriate for the apartment, not so much for the street. But then, I'm a bit of a prude I suppose.
I agree, with Nora, more in Brooklyn, especially in Fort Greene/Clinton Hill, the lightening at dusk is always lovely…and the store behind the woman is Carol's Daughter…well the original. Wonderful wonderful products for anyone who loves things that smell good and to have those smells on them…and it just so happens that my Mom's friend started the place in her brownstone basement…its a wonderful place to shop, highly recommend.
Ahhhh Brooklyn-I miss it so. This is a lovely picture. I was born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island but BK was my stomping grounds. I loved and still love the different looks-culture. I am now here in Charlotte, NC. I used to sit outside my friends shop which used to be on Vanderbilt at times and just conversate and people watch.
