All Gussied Up, in Park Slope, Brooklyn

Character, Brooklyn
Photo by myself, in Park Slope, Brooklyn.

A well-dressed fellow in Brooklyn wore a fedora and a coat with a fake fur collar. He looked as if from another era, Saturday afternoon.

I took this photo while stopped at a streetlight. It looked like he was in the midst of moving to or from the neighborhood.

Update: Thanks to Antjas from Sudbury Daily Photo, who suggests that this fellow had just returned from Costco, haha.


Gah, I'm sorry for the sporadic posting. My stash of photos is in such a sorry state, where nothing seems worth sharing, if you know what I mean?

Thankfully, today is President's Day in the US. Most people have the day off. Hooray!

alors bonne fete du "President's Day" et bonne promenade pour faire de belles photos (mais a NYC, on fait toujours de belles photos ;))

I cannot think that I would ever get dressed up to move stuff. He obviously makes an effort though.

He really does look out of place but a great looking individual, to photograph.

Looks a bit like the Sartorialist is meeting the garbage strike in Naples. But a very beauty shot. Like it much

He looks like he has stepped out of a movie, waiting to play his scene.

I can spin all kinds of stories about this guy! And I totally know what you mean about photos worthy of sharing. A constant challenge -

Antjas said...

It's obvious. He has just returned from an outing to Costco.

Thanks everyone!

Antjas, you are probably right!!!
I was duped since people bring their own bags now. All the items look new. ha!

This is an unKitty shot, somehow. But excellent! Shake it up baby.

Is the big ring on his pinkie from Costco too? :)
