top notch people watching…

With the Salone comes excellent people watching opportunities. I tend to save portraits of people for when i am in India. Am a bit shy taking pictures of folks up close in the western hemisphere, in India people march right up to you and request pictures which makes things a lot easier. But here the streets are paved with magnificent photo opps and everyone is very happy to have their picture taken.

She is here regardless of the Salone, she has a regular pitch in the Brera district of Milan. No idea if she is any good but she looks bloody marvellous.

I found this quaintly old fashioned these nivea vespa taxis – that giant tin of nivea is actually strapped to the back of a small female (you can just see her wee legs at the bottom of the tin) who rides around the city on a vespa advertising as she goes – very 1950’s

They were publicising Harmony books – romantic novels in the vein of Mills and Boon. Anyway i asked for a photo and they posed away…

They are paid to sit on the sofas all day listening to ipods and flicking through magazines – pretty good gig really.

This lot were omni present, advertising for nokia, here they are on Tortona, sorry i never caught the guy, his glasses even coordinated…
