In 1998, I purchased a purple silk jacket with extensive beading/sequins all over it. The beading is mostly gold colored and very flashy. It has sort of a Sargent Pepper quality to it. I am a shy person and I was visualizing a transformation of my inner self.
It closes with hooks and eyes in the front. When my son saw it he said, “Oh it’s an Amish garment.”
I am less shy now but maybe I also have more sense now too.
Love the black & white. Would love to see more close ups of New York life. A lot of photos of New York are about the vast buildings and long streets but when you get photos like this, it gives you more of an atmosphere about a place.
That is an astoundingly beautiful photograph that hits all the marks wonderfully. The depth of focus brings the ornament into high relief, the lighting is just magical, and the composition superb. Bravo!
So much of the beauty of eastern US cities is in the minutae — and so much of it is lost when one only focusses on the vastness and size of the places. As with so much else, it’s the small things that make places a home rather than just a place to exist. One could devote an entire life to seeking such things out and documenting them, probably in a single city.
Wow! So simple and so powerful! What a great picture! It always amazes me how an image can capture a feeling and transmit so much purely by attaching meaning to what we perceive to be true in our minds!
W. Allen comes to my mind looking at the pictures of NYC in black and white and I can hear Rapsody in Blue in the background.
Scott, you are expending your talent to more than fashion and I can only applaud your achievements ! (Does this make sense ?)
The bird is a refreshing difference from most of the signs on top of cabs that advertise strip clubs in NY. Of course, NY wouldn’t be NY without it’s yellow taxis. A beautiful way to capture the spirit of NY.
