Stripes

The New York Easter Parade is a Spring tradition .
On Fifth Avenue,
Elegance and Gentlemanlike behaviour were in order.
There is Hope!!!

Le jour de Paques, une des traditions New Yorkaises
est de parader avec son chapeau sur la 5eme Avenue.
Elegance et Galanterie etaient de rigueur..
Il y a de l'espoir!!!

You've got a great blog with incredible photos. Especially like the one with the mannequin in the window and the man standing on the street below it.

Waouhh (j'ai beaucoup de vocabulaires ;o) ) la classe, surtout le premier, j'adorerais avoir le même costume (cela surprendrais les amis ;o)).
En réponse a ton passage, la tradition russe veut que l'on laisse la tasse (ou un verre) après la conversation avec le mort, il y avait même des œufs de pâques sur certaines tombes d'enfants, malheureusement il y a eut une tempête de grêle, et j'ai pas pu faire les photos que je voulais

nous n'avons pas du tout ce genre de tradition en France ...

I think the word is "dapper." That striped gentleman is very dapper, as are the couple!

Must be an interesting parade!

Hi again! Re your comment on Regina (Ocala DP) - you are exactly right...she was smoking a cigarette!

Très Gatsby...

I had no idea that New York continued with this old tradition. Especially love the first photo and the casual grace in the man's gesture.

As always, excellent and colourful! A lot of stripes (and some dots)! The star is you!

Beautiful shots. The couple in the second photo is very elegant and the style of their clothes harkens back to a bygone era.

Impressionnant et génialissime !

That lady would beat any other at the Ascot horse racing! :-)

wonderful captures!

Jolie tradition. Le pantalon du Monsieur noir est top. Il s'est fait une jolie tenue.
Le bibi de la dame fait un peu Catherinette? mais il est chouette.

These are wonderful. So full of gentle spirit and joy.

A charming smile and a tip of the hat. Ah, the good old days. And the last couple remind me of King Edward and Wally Simpson. (Imagination is required.) I just love the hat.

Glad to see you focused on fashion and taste instead of funny costumes. Very nice!!

Pierre April 6, 2010 at 3:14 PM  

Deux magnifiques portraits !

Ceciel April 6, 2010 at 5:11 PM  

Décidément New York sait surprendre et séduire !

Gunn April 7, 2010 at 3:26 AM
