mustard variations




Having shot street style for a few years now - four, to be exact - I'm not as interested in doing the classic posed shots. Especially not at fashion week, when everyone's either posing for, or shooting, street style. I much prefer the true 'street style' concept - as Bill Cunningham originally did, from his bicycle - of shooting off the cuff, as I'm running past.

And then the fun of realising things after. Like the way this girl's hair has that slight twinge of lavender, a lovely foil to mustard. And both are such quintessentially English flavours. Although I can't imagine ever eating lavender and mustard at the same time.

That's an honour indeed, coming from you, Lauren! And I'll take a quick peek (while my husband is chomping at the bit to watch The Killing- the original Danish version, on dvd) on your lovely blog!

I agree - not a fan of staged or overly posed street style. By definition it's supposed to be...well, like this.

I agree the non posed pictures are so much better, you capture so much more of what is going on.
