Bobby from Boston

My eyes fell on this face and I thought of the picture below by Roy DeCarava. I simply loved the expression in Bobby's eyes and the possible stories behind each wrinkle.

I didn't know Bobby was man behind Bobby from Boston when I took this picture (when I introduced myself that night, he said, "I'm Bobby"). One goes to Bobby's for absolutely fantastic vintage clothing. Think mint condition vintage blue satin YSL pumps.

A week after taking this picture, I went to Bobby's and there he was. He said simply, "Why hello there!" and I responded, "It's you!" What a face.

I love this. I should send you some pics of Baldamer ladies on their way to church. Fabulous, honey. Just fabulous.

Aw, thanks so much for linking me! I'm flattered. :)

Bobby is such a great guy :) And I SO miss the Bobby from Boston shop!

Those are great photographs - so much character, you can really tell there's a lot of stories behind those eyes. ;)
