    What a wonderful photo! She looks so calm and pleasant out among the other stressed. Furthermore, her style is a lovely contrast to the people around her.

    In the hustle and bustle of city life this wonderful woman pauses for a moment of stylish serenity.

    Delightful shot! I love the range of facial expressions, the woman in white bookended by the two people in dark outfits, her stillness and their motion. And, of course, her white dress is adorable.

    There’s a lot to love about this photo – the activity surrounding the stillness of the woman in the center, the reflection on the sunglasses of the woman to the left. Plus, her dress, her pose, the fact that here eyes are closed… So great.

    A beautiful demonstration that simple looks and clean silhouettes always win.

    I love this photo I wonder if the woman in the center is daydreaming.. I love the look on all of their faces.. Fabulous capture.. Oh.. and I want her silver ballet flats ;)

    Gorgeous photo of stillness.
    I bet she’s an HSP.

    I know that she may well have shoes to change in to, but I always think that women who wear flats look fresh and exciting. I think it demonstrates a certain amount of confidence and individualism to not wear heels in the evening or at fashion events.

    Strange, not a single pair of eyes we can see in this picture. Can’t help but wonder what’s going through their heads……

    What a vision! She looks so serene, so calm in the middle of this chaos. And in white, no less like an angel in a sea of black! Great shot!

    The 3 faces of fashion week. Serious and concentrate for the rock chic lady, peacefull, ethereal, creative and evanescent fot th lady in white, funny, dynamic and structured for the gentleman.

    This photo is fabulous!

    I love how the shoulders come together and the dress is so simple around the chaos there’s peace.

    I love this photo and would love to print it and put it on my wall. Is that allowed? I assume the print quality would be terrible from a web-sized photo. Is there a repository to download higher quality?

  25. Dawn

    September 28, 2011 at 10:27 am

    I love her facial expression– so serene and relaxed, just like her white soft dress. totally the opposite of the woman on the left.

    The white outfit
    is simply beautiful.
    But the most beautiful,
    is that she thought it,
    to meditate
    on the street,
    in the subway,
    between people,
    awaiting the green light
    to share his good vibration
    with those on the side.

    Simplicity really makes the difference…

    GORGEOUS dress! This is a beautiful shot, love the black & white!

    This picture is unreal, I love it so much.


    September 28, 2011 at 11:22 am

    Great photo! the contrast between white and black, an angelic look amidst the aggressive look of the Milan fashion week.

    Picture contrast and color sense!

    This picture makes me sigh. She is amazing.

    At a Spanish villa next to the shore…waves crash on the beach–controlled thoughts. White-Clothed in her mood of the day she moves along the dark framed rigid masses with her cool flowing thoughts and dress.

    Woman in white is beautiful, so chic. Alone among so many peple

    Wonderful photo… so much to see and think about in this shot. And I think we have seen all three of these individuals, from some of your previous photos?..

    I love photos like this. It breaks up the blog and makes you want to see more. I have to add, that they look like really sophisticated New Yorkers waiting for the bus…..

    Simple but stylish, I wonder what she is thinking…

    My father always used to say “there is beauty in simplicity”.

    I can’t believe you were able to capture this moment of serenity… it’s just beautiful.

    Amazing photo. In fact, this may be one of the best-composed street/unposed photos I’ve seen. The lines of the building, the alternating areas of light & dark, and the angles of the bodies of the folks surrounding the woman in white all drive the energy of the photo toward her, whose ethereal dreaminess is the perfect counterpoint.

  45. Johnny

    What a shot! Looks almost like a dream.

    I love the contrast in facial expressions between the two women. The woman in white is certainly beautiful and I’m in awe of her ability to be so serene in that setting.

    September 28, 2011 at 6:29 pm

    I think this is my favourite photo I’ve seen on your blog, the black and white is so effective and I love how you’ve captured three such different expressions in one instant – irritation?, serenity, mirth.

    As someone already mentioned, a true Cartier-Bresson ‘decisive moment’.

  59. Martine

    September 28, 2011 at 8:27 pm

    All three of these people look wonderful. Each in their own way. But I don’t see the girl in white being a standout. Except of course the she is wearing white.
