    I like the simplicity of her, it’s a great moment, but not too sure about the overall simplicity, darkeness and angle of the photo. It takes away from her just a bit.

    Another great capture Sart! I love how the background compliments her pose and outfit.

    this is another great photo. She looks statuesque, and her white skin is greatly emphasized by the dark surroundings.

      Aura, yes! The image is lovely to be sure but the colors and textures is what really does it!

      To my mind comes Edward Hopper.

    There’s a bit of a dark hue to the photo? Might that have something to do with the time of the morning? She seems to be the only one out and about – no passersby in or outside the store.

    right from the thumbnail you got me thinking of edward hopper, not only for the colours, but also for the moment that you captured
    great shot!

      same here! the colors, the light, the isolated figure – edward hopper

    • Ray H

      June 12, 2013 at 10:39 am

      I agree! The figure’s gesture, the colors, and the architectural vintage all say “Edward Hopper.”

  36. Donna

    I agree with Bella. This photo is a work of art. I could see it hanging in a gallery. Interesting color contrasts, fluid lines of the woman, beautiful.

  61. Hugh

    Agree Stefano Bravo. There’s something Hopperesque about that photograph. The building, the ambiguity, the light, the colours.

    Scoot or his assistance!. how spontaneous is this picture? Did you just shoot or you ask etc? I’m Very curious, I been following this blog for years, but this one comes from a totally different angle than the last thousands photos been post.

    All the best

    A solitary figure, a lyrical gesture, austere setting–definitely Hopper…shows how cropping a photo achieves a desired effect.

    The practical side of me says, How does she crouch like that without showing all her underneath things. The other side of me says, nice shot.

    amazing use of depth of field and lowered angle catching half of window height pulls the eyes to subject level yet elevated from the street level. her forward motion stopped with 2/3 field behind her. this photo one of the best i have seen. bravo bravo bravo!

  70. Albertine, NYC

    June 10, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    I humbly disagree with those who find something Hopperesque in this photo.

    The photo does not create that sense of desolation so typical of Hopper’s paintings. And where is the light, that bright Hopperesque light that never fails to cast shadows deep down the voyeur’s soul?

    One can easily tell that this woman’s eyes and hands are too busy searching. She has lost something, but that something is neither hope nor herself. I am sure that soon she’ll leave the spot, unlike those mannequins whose arms are hanging down as if in abandonment.

    I wish there had been another photo of her standing in all her slenderness gracefully mounted on the pedestal of her lovely sandals.

    • Hugh

      June 11, 2013 at 8:19 am

      Albertine, NYC.

      Not all Hopper paintings are desolate, some merely enigmatic or ambiguous. Just what is she searching for in her bag? As for the light, Hopper usually has light from at least three sources, and I’ll agree there are just two – above, which seems to illuminate the pillar and her her skin, and the right of the photo. But the other Hopperesque feature is the shard shape produced by the pavement.

      • Albertine, NYC

        June 11, 2013 at 3:21 pm


        I have not seen all Hopper’s paintings. However, in the ones that I have seen and in which the subject is a solitary woman what I have perceived is a sense of desolation and hopelessness. Those women are not present, but absorbed in something from their past. What they have lost is gone forever and there is no bag, no matter how big, where they could look for it. In fact the very idea of searching for “it” is alien to them because they know better.
        I view them trapped in their setting bathed in “harsh” light where Hopper has placed them.

        Contrarily, the subject of the photo above has lost something that she sooner or later will find or will be able to replace. She is quite present and anything but trapped. In fact, very soon her magic sandals will take her away to another store where she will make the wise decision of maxing out her credit card on a Fendi orange bag.

    She’s so pale, frail and lovely, it looks as if she’s about to hop up through the window to join the other mannequins at work for the day!

    Also: It interests me greatly that women in New York can wear such minimal summer clothing and still somehow manage to appear “dressed” — whereas in most other places (tropical islands aside), such an outfit would come off as sleazy. (Even when I just visit Manhattan, I feel perfectly comfortable wearing less fabric than would feel appropriate on the hottest day in San Francisco. (-: )
