On this sunny day in Manhattan, as my wife and I we’re doing some shopping, I came across this nice Japanese couple (friends) who both had such a great style. So I approached them, in both the English and a bit Japanese language, and they we’re quite surprised by the way I approached them. We had a nice chat about Japan and their visit to New York. They really liked posing for the blog and especially this woman took advantage of the moment and used the street (yes, the street) as her catwalk.
Such a nice and beautiful woman …I spotted her from far away and thought of surprising her by shooting her just when she passed this corner. So the picture below is the one I shot first, keeping her real expression (a split-second after this shot she smiled friendly).
Afterwards we had quite the ‘small talk’ about her work as model, mine as photographer and of course New York City. Without noticing it we walk a few blocks together, while shooting and talking. I’d love to meet people like her ….open, interesting and friendly.
When I think of basketball jackets I usually think of America, that’s the associating I have with those jackets. The funny thing, during my visit in New York I only spotted this jacket once on this girl combining it with heels. Luckily I got this picture to prove it;)
A female look I personally really like is a basic black dress with sneakers. It has that feminine appearance with a healthy and sporty touch. During my stay in New York I saw this kind of look quite often (also a few disasters!)
