Holdsworth St…Sydney

It’s priceless when I get to photograph someone like Dimitris. I was sitting down watching the world go by when I spotted him fixing his hair in the glass reflection of a shop front window. These actions made me just want to photograph him.

A man who takes care of his look even while he is at work. Now that’s style!

I love this. You know why? His confidence comes through even half-covered by an apron. Superb shot. I can see why he was so compelling.

You pick the most apt and kind descriptions for your subjects. It very much reminds me of how Bill Cunningham describes his subjects…full of affection.

He does look like a decent fellow with a lot of pride and dignity. Well done, per usual. :)

How cool! Looks like a great guy.

This is one of your best photos as it is a man in action!! There is nothing more sexy than seeing a person outside his element and a man with an apron is an example. The apron and his rugged looks combined together is a vignette of the male/female duality in all of us!! I could go on and on about this photo as i love it!!! But, in summary, i would wear the apron if it had a back to it as it reminds me of Comme des Garcons!!
