On The Street…The Fortezza, Florence



Don’t you love the idea that she’s a private detective on a stakeout, but hates going undercover when she has such beautiful clothes?

    That’s a beautiful beautiful coat…
    I wonder if it’s real or faux, after having seen faux hardly distinguishable from real.

    I love her coat! Perfect shot too! x

    Is that real fur? Disgusting.

      Chili Agee, ı like the world of fashion, but ı could cry when ı see real fur, striped away from live animals. Such a big shame…

        I have to agree with the both of you. I don’t see beauty when I see suffering. Humans and fashion have evolved to great lengths… do we need to rely on evil to look beautiful?

      I agree…fur is outmoded and dĂ©classĂ©.

    Perfectly curled in her coat, as it if was her own fur…

      I know. She makes me feel warm just looking at her. Id wear that coat every day if I had it, so maybe it could become like your own fur.

    She’s very hot looking. I really like the camera though as I have one like it.Gotta love those Fuji’s.

    I adore this shot and the story you’ve imagined behind it.

    Just want to say thank you Scott, you’ve been a huge inspiration to me. I’m working on a blog of my own for San Francisco.

    It is nice when you comment your photos, or just tell us how it makes you feel! Great idea for this one!

  13. Martine

    January 23, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    HAHAHA!! She would be a failure on a stake out, her target would know that some chic with really cool shoes was following him around. It would make things awkward.

    Her Leica is the best accessory!
    She is one smart appareled girl.

    • Philip

      January 24, 2014 at 9:54 am

      …although a Leica would go better with the fur coat she is actually using a Fuji X-Pro1.

    I did not quite like her outfit but the way you catched it – the naturality of the picture-is what I like the most..I like these shots of yours -in which people are just acting naturally -very very much…
    nice catch…

    I love it all – your caption, the outfit, the pose, everything.

    Not keen in the fur judgers. Hope those folks are non-leather wearing vegans.

      I think I agree but there are lots of good alternatives to real fur. But perhaps the anti fur brigade could better put their efforts into fighting gainst some the appalling things that are happening around the world to human beings.

      • LIZPR

        January 24, 2014 at 10:50 am

        Hi Andrew!

        I agree re: alternatives … I wouldn’t wear a fur coat because it feels so taboo and I don’t want to deal with the judgement. I do, however, appreciate how real fur trim around the hood of my parka keeps snow off my face better than faux fur.

        People are free to comment negatively about fur of course, but I do find it tiresome. Same with the comments re: smoking or tattoos (as featured on this site).

        Thanks for the dialogue! :)

          January 24, 2014 at 1:57 pm

          Andrew/Lizpr I couldn’t agree more.

          It is a Man’s Vintage Ox Fur Coat I found on Portobello Lane in London. No more animals were harmed in the making people… Vintage! Also fur lasts longer than a lifetime so in someways it is quite sustainable :)

            OMG – speaking with the stylish woman herself! Thanks for your comments, too.

            Thank you for bringing up the vintage aspect …. “fashion recycling”. I have a beautiful mink stole that belonged to my grandmother, but I never wear it … I may as well wear a sign on my head saying, “oh relax. I inherited this from grandma.” I just hate the looks of judgement and it bothers me enough not to wear it. But I treasure it.

            I really love your style and this photos is beyond fabulous.

        I don’t see why we cannot also show empathy towards animal causes. After all, human beings are the ones who cause great suffering onto animals for the sake of fashion, food, testing, etc. You can choose to have a small heart or a big one that cares for all living beings.

    Can cover herself with fur and no one guesses she is a detective

    I don’t think I could ever wear fur, but I find it beautiful.

    Your tag is amazing Scott. Who would want to hide with some a fabulous coat to show off :) x

    I saw this chic at the Fortezza. She stood out as one well dressed lady in a sea of well dresseed gents!

    Love her cool posture, sitting on that wall. And hopefully she is wearing fake fur.

    I love the mix fur and sneakers.
    It’s actually a good idea
    J’adore le mix baskets & fourrures ! C’est une bonne idĂ©e!

    Sorry Tom. Fuji XPRO-1, not Leica.

    I love this photo and her outfit, especially the shoes, so perfectly matching the coat without having the feeling that it was done on purpose, i don’t know if you see what i mean…

    Just Gorgeous!

    Where can I can get those BOOTS??

    I don’t care for fur either unless it’s faux. Animals raised for fur are subjected to worse abuse than cattle raised for meat & leather.

      These boots are Calfskin Combat boots from All Saints in London- probably not something you want if you don’t want to wear fur!

    I seriously love all your photos of camera wielders and probably have pinned ALL of them! x

    I just love your fanciful caption for this photo. It elevates it and now I want to write a story around it!

    Her style is just chic and individual… I love it and the camera suits perfect to her smart outfit. An example of beeing born for fashion!

    Beautiful!! I love your photography and how you expose a specific moment in that person’s life. When the person’s face is blocked from the photo by whatever reason, the moment that you’re capturing, becomes so intringuing… I mean… who’s the face behind the camera??

    I am deeply saddened that fur is so en vogue again. I thought we learned something a few years ago.

    Absolutely love this combo with the boots and fur! Amazing!
