      I think there looking more at Scott’s interest in her while he shoots.

      I sure someone else is going to say something about her tattoos, I don’t mind tattoos but maybe, just maybe, she has too many, it doesn’t seem to fit with her summery outfit but maybe from the front it’s fine.

      That guy in background has a vest over and t-shit?!

        They are not looking at Scott. They are staring right at her. Four of them, actually. If they were wondering why Scott was taking her picture they would be looking at him.

          They are looking at her to see who is she? Why Scott taking picture of her!!!
          Andrew is right!

    Everyone nowadays has a tatoo… even soccer moms. It is no longer cool or rebellious. The shot is nice and the girl is pretty but the tats are like vandals ruining a beautiful work of art by spray painting it.

    August 15, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    This looks like the modern American version of the Ruth Orkin photo you had on the other day: the young woman being checked out by the slightly predatory young men….but she is not in a hurry to get away and she looks like she can handle the attention….

    This is a contemporary Ruth Orkin. And now we can say that the girl is not afraid. Good shot!

  43. Lili

    August 15, 2014 at 4:59 pm

    I can’t help but compare this picture to the Ruth Orkin posted earlier. I know that the subject of the latter interprets her experience in it as “a girl having fun”, but her body language seems to tell another story… Here we have a girl surrounded by men and attracting their attention too, but she is definitely more relaxed, a master in her element and letting everybody know it. She doesn’t seem oppressed. And men can only look. I know these photos have been taken in different settings and different countries, but they seems to express, in my opinion, that the work of elders on sex equality is leading somewhere? Or are they different expressions of proud women in different times? Anyways, amazing shot!

    She is so very concentrated on her coffee and pays no attention to men floating around her. Fascinating. Her indifference is even more intriguing than her whole look, young, beautiful and fierce.

    Aside from her bohemian, easy good looks, maybe part of the stare is her stopping in the middle of the street to drink her coffee.

    August 16, 2014 at 1:26 pm

    Weird the way everyone believes *all* the guys are looking at this woman. One guy turned back to look at her, his friend is looking at him, no one else – the comments then simply reflect each individuals (imaginary) interpretation of the moment

    Of all the details one could discover by studying the photograph , perhaps the most astonishing is how you always seem to find the most remarkable natural light in which to capture these images. I can’t say about London, Parsi, Rome, or Madrid but in Manhattan this is no small feat.

    Well done, sir.

    i see that sometimes people forget; tattoos possibly may not be meant for your opinion, they may not be meant to be open to comment (apologies, we do realize they are public and are an open forum, but it wasn’t necessarily a choice based on attention). Looking and having a judgement, that is fair. Publicly stating that you think me and my peers are less than equal is hurtful. Shall we always tastefully disagree on fashion and always respect another’s choices. In short, hey assholes stop being rude, we never asked you.

    What an amazing photo. This is really really good. The light, the street scene. The head turning woman.
    She has an interesting style – she dresses very feminine, she has this long wavy hair, but then she has many – really many – tattoos.
    And I do not want to think about what she looks like when she is older – that is for her to think about. You, Scott, captured a great moment – and that is perfect.

    Maybe somebody already mentioned this, but another interesting contrast to the Orkin photo is that in this one, the woman is stationary and the men are in movement; in the Orkin photo it’s the opposite.

    Nice light in that street scene. The guys surrounding her seemd to have syncronized their look.

    I know this image really isn’t really about her clothes but it is interesting how her preppy, suburban summer clothes are thrown off kilter by her bad-ass tattoos.

    As everyone’s making up things: I just like the fact she’s wearing a wedding ring (at least that’s the finger) and maybe she got herself a loving husband at home, that’s why she’s so relaxed + dares to wear Birkenstocks and don’t care bout guys drooling over her :)))

    Gorgeous young woman with a very cool style! She appears to attract the attention of the young men around her. :)

    She’s gorgeous! I would stare too if I was walking by – women with tattoos look so amazing to me – especially when they are dressed simple and girly – kind of like me. :) My hubby loves it.

    If you expose your body like that and its full of tattoos, you’re likely get some stares!
