129/366- TI: I "TI" Too Hard On PB

Isn't she stylish and so beautiful in this shot? Holy Mackeral - I sure think so!

Lesson Learned: Beauty is in our heart - but a well worn scarf keeps the heart warm and "stylish".

Note: Too little sleep last night. Read below to have this make any sense at all.

Seeing Scarves

I have seen many posts on PB where women are wearing big neck scarves. I guess that is what they are called. Yesterday I asked a friend if the wearing of neck scarves was a “European thing” because I did not recall noticing it as a big style in Philadelphia. I did not yet receive an answer from my friend as of the writing of this piece.

Actually, I am hoping that the question was lost in cyberspace because I had the answer provided loud and clear last evening during a photo shoot in the city with my PB friend Jeff Cornish. I now know that the question was a dumb one.

Why a dumb question you ask? Well as I walked the streets last evening, I began to notice that so many women and a few men were indeed wearing beautiful scarves. I even saw dummies in store windows wearing them.

How is it that I missed this fashion’s populatity until last evening? Maybe I am not as good an observer as I fancy myself? Not the astute people watcher I have been alleged to be perhaps?

I hope that the friend who this fashion question was directed to will not think me foolish for asking it. It was simply a lapse in my otherwise keen observation skills.

It is a beautiful style. The women looked so attractive and “European”. The men looked cool and confident. If I was more daring, I would wear one - maybe.

As you might suspect from this story, I was really TI-ing to come up with something to write for today’s post. And – I was super struggling coming up with a way to illustrate this week’s Tuesday Inspiration. It was really a lot of TI. Very hard TI. In many ways, writing a daily poem or story has become a job for me. Just plain hard TI. I need a day off from TI.

Ryana Hehe, we also were them a lot ... and no, it's not a European thing Dan. ;o)
You look at people's eyes and to women their ... long legs ... therefore you do not see the fashionable scarves Dan.

marilynx Oh Dan ... I must have over 100 scarves!! I love them and your model is looking perfectly draped.
It's how you wear the scarf that's important.
Badly draped they do not enhance a look, beautifully draped they add that "je ne sais quoi"!
Learning to tie them correctly is indeed TI

borogovoi Yes...Like this portrait Dan !

MoMac You desreve a well earned rest from Ti .
Scarves are a passion well mine and I'd say my daughter's too we have so many and swap often . But a simple practical reason they keep us from catching a sore throat when there are blasts of cold air around.
It is a gift I personally never tire of receiving.I think it completes the even plainests of outfits.
MoMac · 2012-05-08: 17:52
liveandletlive I think you'd look damn dapper in a scarf Dan! Dapper Dan!
I love scarves.
My bar pilots left Philadelphia in their new helicopter last Thursday and it finally got here. They had to go south to avoid some weather first. I wish I could have gone with. I'd have just showed up at your door. lol
liveandletlive · 2012-05-08: 20:11
paintbox Maybe the reason that you never noticed them before is that scarves don't call attention to themselves, they just make a woman (or man) look more put together. This is a very nice shot and beautiful woman.

joycephotography I have been wanting to write this for awhile but I always forget. "Book 'em, Danno."
Great post as usual..............

breizh Nicer than queen elisabeth's hats ...
Nicer than yasser arafat's keffieh ...
Nicer than a hijab or niqab ...
... Not so nice as a "véritable cathat" .... :-)))

honzicek Nice capture Dan!
honzicek · 2012-05-09: 10:31
Keryl Oh, somehow you don't strike me as a scarf man. More like a bandanna around your head!
You've captured a lovely woman here and I don't know what the ti is.
