the third pic is sooooo hot, love the entire look (esp the shoes).. tres jolie. First pic, i just cant imagine how uncomfortable those shoes must be because they are not the right size…but a true diva will MAKE IT WORK and it seems like she is.
These people in black outfits make very interesting photos–at first glance they look almost like silhouettes of negative space cut out of the photo rather than real people in the photo. Very cool effect.
Fashion-wise, though I am tired of the all-black look. I did it for several years and enough is enough!
Great sihouettes and i always love your walking/non-posed shots. I like the idea of a whole series of weather-influenced photgraph; the way people adapt their clothing for shelter or shade. i LOVE the top pic with those killer shoes – she means business, rain or no rain you can just tell!
Oh, the Plume in the second photo – why not protect it!? It looks like Box Calf. Why?! This causes me so much pain!! Gorgeous none the less, however! Oh, the first silhouette. Swoon! My heart is stolen!
You can never go wrong in all black! It instantly makes someone appear sophisticated and elegant. I really like the little touches of gold in all 3 pictures too. I never thought anyone could pull off the over-the-knee high boots, but this picture proves me wrong! She pulls it off quite well and it’s an understated sexiness, which I love.
Why the stigma with umbrellas? I understand that they’re not the most fashionable accessory, but if you’re traveling more than a few blocks, is your (not even waterproof) coat really going to keep you dry? I commute by bike, and if I don’t wear a raincoat on rainy days, I’m soaked by the time I reach work or class.
I’d rather look not-so-cute on my commute than have my fashionable ensemble be soggy for the part of the day when I’m indoors.
What’s the consensus on fashion vs. function here? It’s clearly not raining too hard in the photo, but if it were…
Re: the first photo. Her shoes may not be too big; rather, her foot may be too narrow–a problem that arises because women with super narrow feet are almost universally shunned by shoe makers. Note that her toes are overhanging her shoe on the lead foot as she presses forward. That her foot is probably wet and sliding around in all that extra width forces her foot forward–which wouldn’t happen if the shoes were narrow enough. Someone mentioned the straps on her shoes holding her in. Of course they do. Take it from someone with a 5A heel, without straps we narrow-feet type would leave a trail of shoes wherever we went. I hate shoes. The only good thing about winter is boots. Pull on a pair of sweatsocks before donning and those puppies don’t move.
Love the shots!! There’s something similar in this post, each picture has something metallic or gold in it that stands out midst the rainy weather. In pic 1 the shoes, pic 2 the bracelets, pic 3 the bag, ring and buttons.
Anonymous 12:21AM – You’re amazing! I looked up the bronze sculpture you mentioned and I’m STUNNED at how similar the forms are. Sart will be so thrilled… I’m swooning over your perception. Thank you; I put them side by side as my desktop wallpaper.
I love the style in black and looks like in a rain day … and I love the photos are beautiful, sharp and caught the look of the people at the time preciso.Realmente I love the photos in this blog are … very professional, but this detail that makes … perfect …(sorry IÂ´m not speak english). Me gusta mucho el look en negro y sobre todo en un dÃa de lluvia. Y adoro las fotos de este blog, profesionales y atrapando el instante perfecto para refljar un estilo…
