This comment could not be improved upon. Although she looks like she belongs to this time, I also feel she has the classic look that will always be inspiring and joyful to behold. i would have loved to see this image in colour but I assume Scott’s judgement rules what would be the best image.
Love the contrast of her delicate neck and the bold necklace. And how she puts up her dread locks with such a feminine touch, love it! But what I love most about her, is her expression, her little smile, so gentle. And the fact that you show this picture in black and white just enhances all these beautiful details!
What a gorgeous photo! I love everything about it–the patterns, her coat, her regal hair and wrap, her bold necklace, her effortless beauty, her peacefulness against the vibrant background. You even got me over my dislike of photos of people with their cell phones. By the way she’s gently gazing down at hers, she could be reading a love letter.
The necklace, the headwrap, the flawless skin, the shoulder, the wrap coat, the pose against the urn, the head angle, OMG just perfect. And the light! I thought she was in Paris on the bridge Pont d’Alexandre. I pass thru and shop at Union Sq for years and have never seen it shown so beautiful. Thank you again, great shot!
