This is my favorite photo I’ve ever seen on this site. The face, hair, pose, the clothes, the accessories, the inappropriateness of those shorts in this weather and the background come together and become one stunning whole.
Does anyone know she is?
Like everyone has said, the light is beautiful. But more than that, the neutral tones in her outfit seem to be melting into the wan fall light. Her outfit as a whole is soft, relaxed, and warm, yet the shorts indicate that last bit of summer nostalgia. Great fall shot!
Yes, excellent light.
The “look”, however, is a little “so last year”, no? And the apple-eater is all bundled up, so the well-lit goddess must be freezing to death.
I believe that real style is dressing for the weather and the occasion.
I love the delicate dreamy expression on her face and the light is almost ethereal. Beautiful photograph! and for those wondering about NYC weather, it’s been unseasonably warm and lovely, I was out in a short sleeve t-shirt and flip flops yesterday afternoon :)
This is the way to tiptoe into fall and winter – pair the summer classics with the fall classics. Love this – it’s gorgeous! Although by the looks of the others around her, she might be a little cold (but she looks good either way!). :)
Hmmm. My first response is that the look is a bit overdone and performative…. but I can’t help liking the fact that she’s stopped dead in the middle of the sidewalk, looking up at the trees or clouds. I’ll bet that she’s just young, having fun exploring looks and enjoying what the world has to offer. And I can’t fault her for that.
She looks like one of those characters in the tv series who light up at the point they get outed as angels.
Studied insouciance? Those pins must be shivering? She would look better without dead things/roadkill/rags on her body? Just how mean can folks get? She’s a young girl, for crying out loud. Don’t hate her just because she is young AND knows how to stop and smell the roses. And you can’t.
As lovely as the girl is, the photo has a weird Diane Arbus quality because the perspective of the photo makes her look freakishly tall in comparison to the normally proportioned woman eating the apple.
What a lovely woman. And how CLEVER to wear fur, which will keep you warm wearing shorts even in Minnesota! Absolutely perfect lighting and pose. Especially interesting because she looks so intent on whatever is above. Its natural and its intriguing. Its especially intriguing because people seldom look up.
