    Great black and white candid. This could almost pass for one of your vintage photos. He looks like a 60s French movie star.

    I have to believe he is an actor, because I yesterday saw an french play with him in the leading part. Love it, when people remember us of other people. Then you always ask yourself: Is he the one, I think he is, or not? Like a little thing of magic in our everyday life.

    I he is the one, or not but this is a great shot.

    And as we say in Germany: What rhymes with something else, is always true.

    I  bring the photo closer on the iPhone so it’s all beiges and coats and three guys. And it is so nice! I don’t know  if the third is really a guy but it does not matter…

    This is a great shot! The guy with the cigarette is so cool, it looks like he’s out of another era. Reminds me a little of Serge Gainsbourg.

    Loving his cool nonchalant look, he makes a cigarette hanging out of ones mouth actually look cool.. I normally hate that. Loving the trench.. and skinny pants.. on *him* not everyone can pull that off..

    This is so Paris to me. Well, at least one of the images that I will always have – a man in a big jacket, cigarette hanging out of his mouth and lots of movement. Great shot!

    Excellent style, especially the blurred guy at the front.

  79. Charikleia

    November 14, 2011 at 8:23 am

    Good, I am not the only one who thinks this guy totally looks like Jacques Brel!

    I love the look (BUT for the shoes, which however in a very funny way could not have been different, otherwise he would look like a retailer’s commercial)

    Kisses from Greece!

    When did this raincoat come to be called a trench? It is quite obviously a mac. Pedantry aside, great photo.

    November 18, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    I love this photo for so many reasons. I love that he was captured in a moment of absence; in a automatic cigarette lighting mode. He’s present in his head, and I like that.
