|Friperie Freep' Show, 80 Rue du Loup in Bordeaux|
I am used to going to that thrift shop where one can find great pieces of clothing, but all the more so since I've started taking urban moments photos. It is an interesting spot because it is mostly stylish people interested in vintage who go to that store. (It is called Freep Show which is actually a pun: a "fripe" is a thrifted item in French but they wrote it "freep" to make it look like "peep show").

So I was in front of Freep' Show when I saw these two guys. The one on the left first put his bag off camera but I immediately asked him to keep it. In spite of that, we still can"t see it properly. It was khaki and "vintagely" overwore. The one on the right manage to pull off a denim on denim outfit.

It was actually a collage made of newspapers. The main object of the scene, the lollipop, is red whereas the characters are in black and white. The mother is on the phone, she seems in a hurry and uninterested in her surroundings. Her daughter however is sensitive to the old man's misery and naïvely holds her lollipop to him. It was a piece of art like an optimistic but still very lucid thought. An ephemeral thought though because a few days later, the collage was gone.
I love street style photos of people on bikes, maybe because they seem more natural to me. However they are more difficult to take because of the movement. On that one, my focusing is not very good and she rode in the shade but i'm learning. I still like that photo for the girl's outfit and especially the hat. Simple outfit but great for a summer day.
