Huge fan of your work here! Definitely inspires me to do more with photography. I’m hosting a photography retreat in the South of France. If anyone is interested check out my site: http://www.provencephotography.com
I wish I could find a cozy, good looking, sturdy sweater like this one. This man seems comfy and warm with different layers of clothes and cowboy boots, (I think.)
But, what made me smile was the happy dog who seems to have a matching moustache with his master !
The reflections in the puddle of water add a nice touch to this photo.
Beth is right.
As a huge Big Lebowski fan, I abide with her statement (I did name my blog after a famous quote from the movie, although it was technically “*beep* Dude, let’s go bowling”.
I’ve always wanted to purchase this sweater but I feel it wouldn’t go well with my complexion, so instead, this year I’ll get meself a dark lopapeysa.
Here are some links where you can actually buy your own “Dude” sweater:
This is my favorite picture of yours, Scott. I can see a whole story behind it. It reminds me of old New York, Sylvester Stallone from Rocky. James Caan from The Gambler. What does this man do in life? His style is timeless, very classis, careless. It’s very manly.
Great shot! Funny how the dog seems to be totally aware it’s being shot and the owner seems totally into his walk.
I am fortunate enough to own two of these sweaters, including one that resembles the one in the picture. It is a Pendleton sweater with a zipper closure that was made in the 70′s and for a short time thereafter, I think. I have a black one with red and gray trim, but a later version.
Can’t beat their warmth for their moderate heft–one can brave 20 degree F weather with a thermal shirt and a scarf. Bought mine on Ebay. You won’t find them for less than $100-150 during this season.
Such an authentic NYC shot! I’ve actually walked past this guy a couple of times in the SoHo/Nolita area, and you’ve done an excellent job of capturing his aura. If it hasn’t happened already, I’m sure someone who knows him will eventually identify him or at least notify him that he’s been featured here.
