I love the image and how her head just grazes the top of the buildings bringing an interesting scale and strength to her. As a “look”, not my cup of tea… too bare for the street. However, I am certain that is what others will like about it.
It’s a cute dress and I like her stance. I like the layout of the shot, too.
I like the socks and the detail on them – but not with this dress. Those socks would look awesome with a sleeveless black button down, tucked into black tailored shorts, then the white socks, with an Oxford shoe or something.
OMG, I know exactly where this park is, I usually go there to read a good book/article and wish I’d run into someone interesting enough to photograph. Leave it to Scott to beat me to it!! Haha, beautiful capture.
I love this one. She’s away in a daydream caused by the book and just stopped by the slightly voyeuristic photographer, who has brought the camera to frog perspective, to be sure, that the socks and short detail of the dress get to attention. She will be leaving with a short smile and later on maybe smile to herself, because that guy back really had a nerve…
Beautiful photo – it tells a story and leaves room for interpretation. So many questions and just basic answers, leaves the viewer in a fantasy created by the purity of that breathtaking split second, where everything ends and begins. The NOW.
Yes and No. I expected someone to think it sooner as I read through the comments. Most people would wear this exact outfit, but minus the socks, of course. I certainly would. But with her lush youthfulness( and I don’t mean just her age) and a kind of Lolita spirit that others have noticed, it makes a certain sense, no?
this is the paradox: no one really wears knee socks anymore (there is an argument in Sept about whether anyone wears anything “ironically”), but this girl has an air of naivete, so no easy explanation for the socks…
