    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.

    It feels as if I had seen this picture before. Very nice nonetheless. Reminiscent of Françoise Hardy's scopitone for Tous les Garçons et les Filles ; or Carla Bruni's videoclip for one of her English songs…

    Love this photo, Sart! Very sexy.

    She inspires romanticifical feelings. I would love to invite her to tea.

    Of course she is also delicious-looking because of the tassel loafers.

    Tassel loafers on a woman are incredibly sexy, if you get my meaning.

    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 .
