and sometimes other places
The last time I was on Canal Street on a weekend day, I had a flashback to a Calcutta street market. Talk about crazy! You're a brave woman, Elizabeth.
the little fashionista is wonderful!
There's a certain air to the little fashionista ... She's got the look already, a natural.
In your Soho graffiti photo, Elizabeth, this image reminds me of two quotes from Picasso, as reported in the NYTimes last Friday, the 17th April, (in brief): 1) Picasso said that technique was important "on condition that one has so much...that it completely ceases to exist." 2) He also said that "unless your picture goes wrong, it will be no good." Seems to me that when looking at graffiti there is some kinsmanhip going on here? See the exhibition in an audio slide show with Roberta Smith discussing it in two minutes! nytimes.com/design (Go to my blog if this doesn't work).
Ah Canal St .. always such a crowd to make your way through ... brave woman!Being one, I love the Fashionista shots!
My kind of shooting. I love small town life, but I sometimes miss the hustle and bustle of life in the city, or in places around small markets outside of villages in other countries.I am retired, but I am not retired, because I am still tied down with shooting for a newspaper, but I really don't have to shoot for the newspaper, but I do, and I don't know why...and so goes the argument in my head.Anyone up for a trip to Cambodia?
Reading the comments about Canal Street make me wonder if it is like Camden Market in North London or the bottom end of Portobello Road - where it stops being trendy and is just crowded with lots of street fashion. Am I right or way off?
she looks so adorable in her little hat.
Canal Street is actually pretty awful.Horribly crowded and impossible.We were headed to Excellent Dumpling on Center Street where they have the best scallion pancakes in the world. Also lunch for 2 with a beer for R. $17.42 - you can't beat it.Yes, Reya, I think Calcutta might be peaceful in comparison.
great pictures! I particularly love the young fashionista. =)
Great colors. The graffiti shot is superb. I think I may have been one of those fashionistas.
nice! love the first photo--you have to come to willimasburg and greenpoint soon---you'll love the grafitti i think...
They were all very fashionable - especially the little one.
I love the mother daughter sandles. And why doesn't graffiti look like this in my neck of the woods?
The fashionistas are wonderful. I wish sandal weather would return!
You saved me a 12 hour plane trip!Ah, Sunday downtown...Aloha and thank you, Elizabeth
I love the fashion-conscious todfdler! May I try a poem?
Elizabeth - great shots! I LOVE the first one and the last one is simply amazing. I haven't had a chance to get to the city in almost a year now but your blog is the next best thing. Kim
Wall and Piece - do you know Banksy, Elisabeth? Graffiti with power.The little fashionista wears precisely what I imagined my daughters would wear. It was not to be. Mostly, they wore nothing.
Fab fashionistas. Especially the delightful little one. Tessa above mentioned Banksy. He's super! If you don't know of him just google him to check out some of his work. I'm sure you'll appreciate it :)
Now, those graffitis will probably grow legs and arms one day and a brain of their own and will take over New York. Just wait and see. Many thanks for such a brilliant post.Greetings from London.
good day friends. I'm actually into shoes and I was digging for the sake of that particular make. The prices due to the fact that the shoes are around 210 bucks on every page. But finally I bring about this site selling them for the benefit of half price. I in reality like those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely buy these. what do you think?
I look forward to hearing from you!
