Less is More

I had seen this man on the bus a couple of times and wanted to take his photo, and today we finally ended up getting off at the same bus stop.   I was drawn to his clean, minimalist style, and the pairing of blue and black, but most of all, I loved his fabulous topknot.  Not many men can carry off a hairstyle that has its history in Japanese samurai and sumo wrestlers, but he does it with panache.

When I edited this photo I noticed that the woman sitting in the window of the Starbucks behind my subject had struck a pose when she saw me taking his photo.  Nice to have an appreciative audience!

  2. Me too! Both are adorable in their own way. I have to applaud you for the art of pulling stylish people aside and asking to take their photo. I have yet to work up the courage although I'm getting better at lending compliments....I just can't ask the big question yet!

  3. I would have style-eyed this man too. Handsome with a unique look. And I love how the woman behind him vamped for the camera. LOL. Wonderful bonus!

  4. Love the photobomb. It's nice when people have a sense of humour about things rather than clutching their pearls and being "oh so offended".

    Oh and CUTE boy!

  7. He looks lovely! That messy topknot look seems de rigeur with lots of young women but he is the first bloke I have seen working it!
    The girl in the window is hilarious! xxxx
