On the Street....Masculine Details, Milano




Everything about this guy is truly old-school Italian: his stare, his gait, and his impeccably tailored suit. Unfortunately, upon every occasion of me raising my camera to take his portrait he would lower his head and walk away.

On my last day in Milan, I could no longer settle with sneaky shots from behind and I thought I should try one more time. I took a risk and tried to get his attention by giving a startling shout behind him in hopes that he would turn around and I could get what I needed and face the consequences. Much to my surprise, when I did capture the fortunate snap above he gave a slow wink,turned, and strolled off.

Wow this cat is black like my first cat, but has the attitude of the one I have now. So weird!

I love how cats can do stuff like that, I met a shy cat a while back, would keep looking down. Even when I got his full attention, he'd look for just a little while and look down again. Interesting creatures!
