Agreed, i love this photo.
I like how many of these photos capture people in daily life and not posed.
The images are often candid yet honest.
I imagine also that she is writing a menu. http://untrucoudeux.wordpress.com/
Yet another add-nothing comment with a link to a blog. The most interesting thing about the Sartorialist website is the commentary by other regulars. I learn and see so much more in a photo from reading the comments. If someone has made a particularly wry observation I will click on their blog link. But these boring and blatant space wasters saying “nice pic!” with a link add absolutely nothing to the conversation. Some would call this trolling.
Black and white pictures are my favorites.
I like the style of this young woman especially the shoes and hair cut.
There is just enough light in the darker background to see what’s going on and my eyes are drawn to every corner of this great composition.
It’s leather I think, or vinyl. The reflection is off the fabric, not through it. Though looking again, I see what you mean about organza; the black and white photo inverts it so it could appear see through. Interesting!
I remember being furious, feeling helpless and improperly outfitted when I failed to explain to a barber exactly how I wanted my hair trimmed in the back. I got something similar to this look and I wanted to cry. Surprised to say, it still hurts a bit.
This scene: everything is so minimilist and oh so right. The fabric and length of that jacket. Love how she’s so effortlessly squats and look at that left hand,resting so comfortably on her shoes…as engrossed by this pic as she is by her task!
Looks like the woman is enjoying what she is doing and she is so into it that she doesn’t notice anything around her. The black and white picture came out just splendid and the lady looking real fabulous.
Amazing pic! I love the squat; shows a lot seriousness. I like the jacket and the shoes but is that skirt not too short? It would have been so awesome if it were a bit longer!But all in all she seems so busy and mindful of her art work of which I like in her!
Yet another splendid shot Scott. What I love the most is that even though it’s a moment out of time, there is all kinds of wonderful movement inferred by the diagonals…the slant of her legs and torso, the tilt of the board, the open door and railing behind the girl. Lovely work.
