@ Pinky – i LOVE those nose profiles. Sad that in the U.S. (where I am) a lot of people ruin their unique noses. I think that guy’s nose is majestic. Love that you caught the beautiful fuschia nails, with the eggplant nails, with the hand gestures, and the smoking.
Really? I don’t know where you live but if you go anywhere in the USA, and especially NYC you will see very, very, very many guys with noses just like his. Wether it is “majestic” or not I wouldn’t know. Its perfectly fine, however. Where in the USA do you even live that everyone can afford a nose job? Most people I know wouldn’t waste the money even if they were bothered by something so foolish. Most American parents wouldn’t even allow their kids to get a nose job just on principle. There must be a whole lot of America you haven’t discovered yet.
tons of people in the US get nose jobs. And, I know many people who pay for their kids to get nose jobs, boob jobs etc. There are many people who would not bother with something so foolish, but there are many that would.
Looking through the window pane is like looking back in time.The affect is like looking at something in a dream, not quite attainable, not quite real. I like the anonymous hand in the foreground with the cigarette it gives a certain je ne sais quoi to the photograph.
That is such a creative accessory. I would not pair it with that jacket and hairdo, though. — I would prefer it with an evening, more formal, look. But I predict we will be seeing those in the USA before too long.
Finally, some variety in your composition….. much more interesting than a solo
character which you tend to do. I realize this is a fashion blog, but I think your
shots could be more intriguing. This has a sense of mystery as the viewer looks
in and asks questions about the characters and situation. Nicely done!
They’re outside on the “terrace”. You can tell from the green tables and heaters, and van parked in the street. The devil may care French may still love to smoke, but they also love to follow rules like nobody’s business. Definitely no smoking in restaurants.
THIS PIC IS SIMPLY AMAZING. It’s so so so Paris. You stare at this and you just can think: OK, the only thing to do now is take a flight and go over there.
This photo achieved its purpose, compliments.
WOW what an incredible photograph! It’s like we are peaking into the life of these gorgeous Parisian people. Amazing! I think it’s one of my favourite photo’s on here! Very different from what you usually show.
I envy your ability to take such candid photos while passing by apparently unnoticed.
The last time I tried something similar at a cafe, I got threatened by this man who said he’d break my Nikon, and my face, if I didn’t put it away. He freaked me out so much that I left without bothering to finish my meal.
It was an extreme reaction, but really this stuff is a lot harder than you make it look :)
Very cool photo! The earpiece looks great on the girl. All are immersed in a comfortable, easy conversation over wine and smoking. Refreshing to see people smoking in restaurants.. unlike the USA. And.. I’m not a smoker. So Parisian!
Look how chic the Parisianswith everything; from their clothing presentation to their body language. Juxtapose this with the macho American men and heavily made-up American women and I am slightly embarrassed of commercial American culture.
….truly enjoy your photographs! What I find so fascinating in your comments is what everyone observes. Each person comes to them with their own unique vision, and there is, generally, one thing that draws them in: may be colour, fashion, pose, background, etc.
What captured my attention was the hand holding cigarette. Lovely!
What draws you in to a picture? Do you see the entire image before you snap, or do you see the whole composition? I am always intrigued by what we don’t see, and then discover, in the final print.
