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.
Dress over pants …a look that instantly stands out and mostly in a good way. She did a nice job finishing it with that suitable leather jacket and hat.
Such a cool look …the hair on fire and an all black look. Really like the contrast, especially with the hars sunlight.
One thing that caught my eye was the clothing of Asian (mostly Chinese I guess) women. I seems they like styling themselves a bit boyish… oversized shirts, big prints, loose/regular fit jeans and sneakers. The reason why this caught my attention is because I visited Tokyo a few years ago and there the women style themselves quite well ..but hey, that’s years ago.
Next time I’ll be visiting New York I’ll keep an eye on the Asian women, curious if there’s any change by then.
When I saw this young woman approaching me her look kinda reminded me of those old army/ war movies …it’s a nice look with personality, a bit manly but working perfectly with her looks. These sober looks appeal to you or not, in my case it did appeal to me so I decided to ask her for a quick photograph. She was really friendly and the moment I framed the shot she had this serious expression.
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.
This guy was great to shoot. I spotted him from behind as you see here above and that holster really stood out. So when I approached him and told him about THE VIEWFINDER he was really enthusiastic, which you can see in the photos down below. Such a great style and good personality. A good example of inspirational menswear.
