Waiting in Style

The Theme of the "game" this month is...
Waiting
Like Patience, a virtue that seems to come from the Old ages..
This young man waiting at the Larchmont train station
seems to be coming out of a Cary Grant movie.

Le theme de la photo du 1erDecembre est
Attendre
Comme la patience,une vertue d'un autre age...
Ce jeune homme qui attend le train a la gare de Larchmont
semble sortir tout droit d'un film avec Cary Grant..

It looks like you were stalking him, M-N. '~) He definitely looks like a cool customer.

Oooh, excellent! You can't go wrong with a Cary Grant movie.

The title is perfect and so is the photograph. I love his relaxed stance, the curve of his back against the rigid lines of the railway station. Dishy too!

Nathalie December 1, 2009 at 1:37 AM  

Il a faux air de Barack Obama, non?
Joli garçon en tout cas, je comprends que tu l'aies flashé.

Titre bien choisi comme tu sais si souvent le faire.

I like it a lot!

C'est ce qu'on appelle l'élégance naturelle ;)

La classe! Sauf les chaussures peut-être ;-) Mais les Américain(e)s ont souvent un petit problème avec les chaussures, non?

Olivier December 1, 2009 at 2:47 AM  

c'est ton b&w qui a l'air de sortir d'un vieux film des années 50. Belle prise avec ce jeune garçon ;)

Cool looking Dude! Very relaxed while waiting and chatting on his cell.

Ceciel December 1, 2009 at 3:50 AM  

Quelle classe ! Et quelle photo (mais ça, on ne le dit plus !)...

Hilda December 1, 2009 at 4:42 AM  

Niiice! And it's perfect in monochrome too — great decision!

Lachezar December 1, 2009 at 5:02 AM  

Great photograph, he seems to be quite amused and not bothered by the wait...

Julie December 1, 2009 at 5:14 AM  

I agree with many of the others: he has the air of Obama; he is dishy; he is sooo relaxed. However, for me the mood of the photograph is the framing where we appear to be viewing by stealth. This gives it the CG resemblance and the sexual attractiveness - especially the DoF of the foreground.

I like this a lot. Ranks up there with Virginia's young man in the cafe. Both monotone, I note.

Bibi December 1, 2009 at 6:29 AM  

Good-looking guy! I'll bet you waited around until his train came!

magiceye December 1, 2009 at 7:23 AM  

excellent capture!

Many of us, I think, considered this type of 'waiting'. Even in my small town there were opportunities for shots of people 'waiting' at the train station. But this image really succeeds on so many levels. You've chosen very well for the theme!

Cezar and Léia December 1, 2009 at 8:36 AM  

C'est un homme très élégant, félicitations pour l'idée du thème!

Tanya December 1, 2009 at 8:57 AM  

Wonderful, classy shot! Happy Theme Day :)

Virginia December 1, 2009 at 2:37 PM  

"He's a smooth operator"!
Great catch. Your portraits are just the best M-N!

My wv is PULATES , I need to be doing that!:)

Classe et nonchalance. Superbe !

Jacob December 1, 2009 at 4:53 PM  

He is, as they say, dressed to the "nines." Italian cut suit? Custom made. Expensive shoes I can see from here. Probably making a deal as you were taking his photo.

Excellent post!

Mo December 1, 2009 at 7:52 PM  

Great image

Perfect for theme day, waiting at a train station. I do it every week day too.

I'm glad I inspired you to remember some of Dr. Seuss's rhymes. He's always been a favorite of mine too and loved reading them to my boys when they were younger.

hpy December 2, 2009 at 3:51 AM  

Mince! Il n'a pas de ventre.

Marguerite-marie December 2, 2009 at 3:57 AM  

on dirait que tu as suivi celui de "in or out" même dégaine , un rien nonchalante smart.

Gerald (Hyde DP) December 2, 2009 at 7:19 AM  

how the young are always on their mobile phones these days

BaysideLife December 2, 2009 at 3:34 PM  

Very cool shot. He seems so relaxed and a peace with the waiting.

Peter December 2, 2009 at 4:34 PM  

La classe, en effet; sans doute une affaire importante en cours !

JM December 2, 2009 at 7:21 PM  

Glad you made it in b&w! I'm sure Cary Grant comes on the next train! :-)

Cergie December 4, 2009 at 11:28 AM  

C'est marrant, il n'y a que le téléphone portable pour figer comme cela qqn dans la rue ou le métro ou ailleurs. D'ailleurs le téléphone portable semble être la seule chose ou personne à laquelle on ait envie de parler ou pour qui ou quoi on soit toujours dispo.

Catherine December 18, 2009 at 8:57 AM  

J'ai tout de suite pensé comme Nathalie. Un air d'Obama dans l'élégance tranquille et nonchalante.

Pam May 17, 2011 at 9:55 AM  

Marie, I had not been on your site in a while but today I was able to go through some of your portfolio. They've left such a nice mood with me. Particularly the NYC photos capture its vibrance and its music. It's so alive and thriving in your photos. You capture so well why so many love NYC and you see the "gardens" in the pavement and the moods and musings - the life and the sound of people that bursts from every inch.

Thank you!
