Elegance...

...mixed with some eccentricity fortunately never looses its grip.
I attended a splendid wedding ceremony of the son of dear friends of mine in England last weekend and wore the same ceremonial suit as this gentleman.
Ombersley, Worcestershire, UK

Worcestershire. How small the world. I spent my childhood in this area. Elegant and eccentric, typically English and marvellous.

What a fine study in B&W. I, too, would love to see a photo of you in your finery.

Thank you, V!!

Thank you too, Dina! When I will receive the official photos made by the photographer, I promise that I will send you a photo of my wife and myself in our ceremonial wear.

Merçì, Olivier!!

A beautiful area indeed, Babooshka!!

As I promised to Dina, I have to wait if the official photographer took a photo of my wife and myself.

What an interesting photo! The two pictured are such characters in the way they are dressed, their posture, and in their facial expressions. I want to know what they were thinking at the exact moment you snapped this shot. I love it! You are very talented!

I love the expressions on their faces. They have an air of elegance, but their faces somehow dissolve away any eccentricity. Thank you for sharing!
