Hey Scott, just listened to your NYT Lens voiceover and looked at the images sitting in a very 'stiff' office in the middle of Melbourne and I was transported by your voice, words and the images. What a great idea/combination. It was like I stepped out to a gallery for a few minutes (at my desk) and was in the middle of some kind of art installation. It'd be great to hear your voice on your blog, in this way, from time to time to. More please. Thanks, Sharon.
Now that's a rare shoe on a laydeee..show's she know's her stuff! Any girl in a burgundy loafer turns my head. Bass Weejun or Sebago penny loafers all the way! Sweet, great pic, next one a gent please!
It feels as if I had seen this picture before. Very nice nonetheless. Reminiscent of FranĂ§oise Hardy's scopitone for Tous les GarĂ§ons et les Filles ; or Carla Bruni's videoclip for one of her English songs…
I just leaned about this blog and when I saw this photo I thought that all the photos were like fashion shots that are planned out first cos this is so perfect :) When I learned that this blog was about people on the street in daily life I loved this photo 100% more.
Scott, Your blog has such a refreshing integrity, always staying true to, like you've said, your reactions to what you see. I'm glad you share those reactions with your readers! This is somehow so 2006 paris, the all black, the cropped hair. Is their an epidemic of French women chopping their locks? Regardless, thank you for the beautiful photographs (beautiful moments around the world)!
I love the simplicity of this look. Who wants to distract from that background? This is the kind of woman I would expect to see hanging around the streets of Paris- very classy. She probably has everything she needs for the day in her black satchel purse .
