On the Street….via Manzoni, Milan

91513MilanTram2896WebI love the vision of this guy in his bucket hat and super chic shoes, such a funny combination.  I imagine him being a chic, Italian version of Hawkeye from M*A*S*H.  I also love the energy of the moment.

    I love your Milan photographs, they just seem so timeless. Thanks for shooting noble ageing people, they are as beautiful as young trendy people (if not more).

    I saw an old guy stride energetically into our voting place today wearing a biking getup. He had to be in his mid-70′s. Something we can all learn from.

    LOVE this man! Yes, the beautiful shoes and suit on such an elderly man. I love the way Italians don’t forego style just because they’re older. The whimsical, casual hat is kind of funny with his look, but maybe he was protecting his head from the sun. It’s cute and so is he.

    Sometimes I see an image that is so inspiring I have to put it on the left side of my desktop so I can click on it every so often and look at it again and again. This is such an image. Everything about this photograph is wonderful, especially capturing the energy of the man!

    Am I the only one to wonder if he meant Lt. Col. Henry Blake and not Hawkeye?

    The hat is just perfect for the weather there is in Milan… I mean, except for today, awesome sunny day (for now).

    Thank you for capturing so often the very spirit of my town.
    The old man, I’d say, spent all his life in Milan and of the city
    he expresses the dignity. Probably he doesn’t live near via Manzoni, but on the old pavement he walks at ease as in his own home’ “salotto”.

    Every gentleman of a certain age should have at least one bucket hat. You can wear it with virtually any other clothing, put it in your pocket when you go indoors, and it shades you from the sun.

    Old man style rocks.

    Great shot! Such a fantastic moment captured! Classy elderly man, gracefully hoping on the tram, with such lightness and dignity.

    There is just something so special about this picture. The man looks in motion and I can’t help but wonder where it is he is going.
