    Can you follow her around for the next 20 years or more and photograph her? Great shot. Just terrific! Really strikes me.

    LOVE THIS PICTURE!!! Everything about this little girl is amazing…the hair, the pose, the dress…adorable!

    So glad you post pictures of children because they’re some of my favorite posts of yours! I love how children wear clothes; clothes never wear “them”. It’s style at its most pure.

    That pose exudes more confidence than a precious little darling like that should have. Amazing photo. She will be a force to be reckoned with in 15-20 years!

    I love that this picture tells a whole story, the way she’s leaning against the lamp post is priceless, clearly observing something very interesting just out of the shot.

    She’s got it. Scott, you’ve got it. This young lady has got style without probably even knowing it. You always capture the essence of style, which essentially resides in your attitude, not in what (or who) you’re wearing.

    Moving, almost shocking. Wonderfull. A book within these limits would do justice to the photos. Reminds me of Sander & Kertesz, though very different from both. The quietness and tenderness of Kertesz, directness of Sander. Masterpiece.

    Terrific shot indeed! She’s so small, but it’s such a mature pose.. As if she knows exactly what she’s going to do in the life that lies in front of her.

    That is too adorable. I love her pose, it’s so grown up seeming. It’s like I’m looking at her when she’s a woman, but thinking about her when she was little girl. The black and white also lends to it.

    “Reminds me of Schindler’s List”: you post but “Don’t Look Now” (an infinitely cooler movie), you don’t. Had no idea that Holocaust Victim was “a look”; ridiculous as it’s self-important.

    For a minute i thought I was looking at a vintage 1950s photos of an Italian child. You almost never see street pictures of children alone these days. It’s the times. A parent is lurking in the background, protectively.

    Case in point: I’m thinking of a 1940s-1950s pic of a young boy running from the bakery with a French baguette ..and he’s alone. I daresay he and his family lived around the corner…but you wouldn’t let a child do that now. Ever. Sort of sad..the lone child street portrait is quite compelling. Shows him/her as an individual, not just as an extension of a parent or a caretaker adult.

    August 10, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    She is kind of playing (probably unconsciously) a grown-up attitude, which is in this case, so cuuute! :)

    No coy pigeon toed stance here! No self consciousnes shy stance. Just a strong confident women in the making. In comfortable stylish sandals, and that perfect stylish no-nonsense hard haircut and cooling classic summerday dress. She’s ready for a fashioable day in the park of rough and tumble fun and all takers, or a hard day of shopping with Mom.

    Anyone that can lean on a lampost like with such apblomb Well,Perhaps we are getting an early peek at a womens weightlifting olympian 2020/2014….or maybe a strong,sensible future Italian Prime Minister.

    Confidence is everything!

    Appreciate that photo is from back in these crazy days, and it has the advantage of creating such mystery, telling us a different story than if it were from the front.

    Love too so much Sott that it is in B&W. Beautifully captures timelessness of the whole scene.

    And thanks too for these wonderful streert by street tours you have given us all over, but especially of Milano! Really makes one feel part of your wonderful world!

    Gratzie, Scott
