Digging the long hair on both! The maroon blazer, the worn[-looking] shoes on the dude … the hat, shades, hair and THOSE TIGHTS (that is what they are, right?) All of it, really. 'Sublime' is a word I tend to reserve for foods, but this is sublime … They look intensely cool.
Her name is Aphrodite and she rides a crimson shell, And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands With tales of brave Ulysses; how his naked ears were tortured By the sirens sweetly singing.
The tiny purple fishes run lauging through your fingers, And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the winter.
What a great picture, what do these people Do? Who are they? Those tights! I remember an amazing store in Amsterdam filled with very uber rubber/leather and fabric clothes, perhaps she got her tights there…
Wow, how did you find these people? I've been living in Amsterdam for years and haven't spotted anything like this – ok maybe a couple of times, but it's still very rare! Anyhow, I love the guys jacket!
Is this too pretentious? I think that's part of what makes it great, as all fashion, even the subtle stuff has pretension attached to it, and this doesn't have to be negative. These guys seem to embrace it.
If you've lived long enough (and I have) seeing a photo like this would take you back to hearing songs from the late 60's, when hair and attitude oozed cool, and dressing was not done casually. You had to achieve a look…and these stunning two have certainly done that.
I've been following your blog for most of a while now, and I have to say your recent Amsterdam photos are my favorite. I love the style, attitude, and different perspective that's presented. Thanks for sharing your work!
You know how everyone agrees that Johnny Depp is just so damn cool?…This is that same energy but in couple form. Everything- clothes, hair, accessories, and most especially stance and posture-is perfect.
A couple destined to be the subject of a modern fairytale. She looks like a land locked contemporary version of the little mermaid, and he is equally as fabulous looking, the maroon jacket says it all x
they look really stylish. He looks very rock n roll with a twist of pirate. Kind of reminds me of that guy from almost famous. Love the tights of the girl and how her red hair clashes with her black clothing. Awesome picture.
I've never commented on your work before, (I've been following your blog for years now) but I absolutely adore this photograph. It looks as if they've stepped out of a modeling agency! Thanks so much for all of your hard work!
Love the all black, then breaks it up with the white, light, girly dress. The hair and glasses and her partner's look make it all work. Everytime I go to Amsterdam, I want to live there. Fun and Beauty! http://www.pippihepburn.com
