On the Street.....Piazza Oberdan, Milan

This is one of my favorite shots in a while.

I love shooting older people not because I think they are more stylish than any other age, but rather because they have different design references than someone 20 or even 50 years old.

For instance, I have never seen a scarf rolled under the chin like this Milanese woman has done. So chic and so subtle; I love the waves of fabric cascading over her shoulder. Maybe in her younger days all of her girlfriends wore their scarves this way but I've never seen it.

This is pure inspiration for me, and inspiration at its most powerful because it doesn't cost money for anyone to recreate that element.
