Lovely picture... it shows a typical scene, those are kind of my favourites. Italy has this magic in the simple things...


Blogger norawoah said ... (3:32 PM) : 

Holy Moly this is a fantastic photo! It looks like it could be a still from a Jeunet film, timeless!


Blogger Ivy Liang said ... (3:32 PM) : 

It is like a movie sceen


Blogger Caroline Meredith said ... (3:38 PM) : 

Oh I love this. Pizzicheria is a typical Roman thing. It's nice to see there are shops that still use that term. Reminds me of my grandma who's one of the few that are still using it.

Mmmm Pizza...mmm Rome. I hope I get pizza soon and I really hope I get to go to Rome eventually.


Blogger Vanessa said ... (5:33 PM) : 

WOW! This must be one of my favourite photos - the light, the ambience, the other worldly-feel. It definitely tells a story, so beautifully framed.



Blogger Thimblebolt said ... (5:40 PM) : 

Ah, now this reminds me of the fabulously tender porchetta I ate in Rome.

I can recommend it to everyone. If you're in Rome, try the traditional porchetta with a glass of red wine.

You'll feel like the king of the world..


Blogger Felicity said ... (5:44 PM) : 

What beautiful light you captured in this photo! And an awesome smile.


OpenID moyrachellew said ... (5:50 PM) : 

What a amazing photography!!!

I love it!


Blogger Kate said ... (5:53 PM) : 

This is amazing! I love the lighting, the expression and the fact that this looks like it is a still from a Hollywood movie! Great work!


Anonymous Ksenia said ... (5:55 PM) : 

Aww this special light of Rome! This photograph reminds me that mood of the Romans you connect with - reserved friendliness..? and a similar doorstep picture of a restaurant owner I took in Rome a couple of years ago

I love this post, thank you so much Scott!


Blogger Anna said ... (5:55 PM) : 

I know that place!!!





Blogger The Wanderers' Daughter said ... (6:07 PM) : 

I think you have another book in the making.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:53 PM) : 

Italy does have that magic in simple things, that and the light. Which makes everything look like a fairy tale. This is a perfect shot.


Blogger 82Brute said ... (7:00 PM) : 

Aaaahhh! I'm mad for this shot! The crushed blacks, the texture of the wall, his goofy smile! I swear, I can barely stand to look at it for wanting to crawl into the screen. I must look away, but I can't.


Blogger Café Ciza said ... (7:04 PM) : 

Ah, yes the light, melting over the building with a rusty shade of warmth ... Gorgeous photo! Bravo!


Blogger Raquel Barbosa said ... (7:12 PM) : 

Seems like my lovely grandpa!!


Blogger ronald said ... (7:37 PM) : 

Nice light Sart!
Great image of the bike as well. Tres chic!

I think the light is different in
Rome. Like the sun is perpetually setting, casting a golden glow over the ancient buildings.

Blogger Aérostat D'or said ... (8:54 PM) : 

I love the art deco font of the sign above the doorway, so good, looks like the letters were taken from an old hotel or theater, I also like that they are slightly crooked which gives me the impression that they are in fact re-purposed.


Blogger caribbelle said ... (9:06 PM) : 

I love the fleeting feeling that comes across. Great photo!

One of your most beautiful photos -- ever!!!
Incredibly theatrical.
As America becomes coarser, dumber, and less civilized, Europe is all the more appealing.

You have the true gift of photography. Not only do you capture moments people would normally pass by, you also seem to have the gift of being in the right place at the right time. Bravo.


While you're in Europe, do you think you could pass by a little village called Carquiranne in Toulon?...

Well doesn't golden light enhance everyone and everything? And we all deserve it now and then. Happy November!

I absolutely adore this style of letters. I am currently working on a font based on a similar design, actually. (I have been using it in the header of my blog for nearly a year). Thanks for the pic. The light in Rome in Autumn is always great!


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (8:22 AM) : 

I do love your non-fashion photos (the fashion ones, too) - so in line with photographers like Cartier-Bresson or Avedon. Great eye and beautiful light!

Anonymous Fanny said ... (11:14 PM) : 

I just love how your photos are the reflection of a time. I like to think that in 30 or 40 years I will tell my kids or grand-child, showing them these pictures, "see, that was the year 2010, back when I was a young lady." Just like my mother did showing me pictures of the 60s and the 70s. You really do take beautiful pictures. Thanks.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:05 AM) : 

I love that you have to guess what time period this is taken from. Everything in the picture points to an older, more moral and friendly time. However, since the picture is obviously taken with a 21st century camera, the viewer has a nice shock- Do people and places like this still exist? Yes, they do!

@fashionslap, pizzicheria is not where you can buy pizza (that would be pizzeria). pizzicheria is basically a delicatessen shop.

Wow, there are so many things about this picture that I love... the smile on the man, the bike, the lighting, and the lettering of the name. It instantly takes me back to Italy and gets me rather excited about what's next.
