29-Apr-06 - Degage sur les oreilles

29-Apr-06 - Degage sur les oreilles

My barber is somewhat old fashioned. Went today with the boys, that was badly needed.
The barber has propably not changed anything in 40 years. He has all kind of stuff - perfume, hair lotions, ... - that are probably 20 years old. Nobody asks for it. He does a good job, for a reasonable price.
Other additions today:

Canon EOS 300D Digital Rebel
1/80s f/5.6 at 22.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium original

I agree with Pascale: very Norman Rockwell (and therefore timeless...)! (V)

This is a great shot reminiscent of the photos that used to be on the last page of Life magazine. What a great place. I'd gladly go to such a shop at least once. :^) Vote.

Superbe image avec des niveaux de gris bien équilibrés. Et le commentaire est très intéressant. Tout cela sera bientôt disparu.
natisunber01-May-2006 16:50
excellent! il reste certains salons de la sorte à Paris tenus par des nostalgiques d'une certaine amérique...
j'aime la comp& le traitement, le regard de l'intéressé ainsi que la discrète présence humaine dans le miroir à gauche... discrète, mais effective (enfin à mes yeux!:)
Naomi Sheaffer01-May-2006 13:54
This is great. I love old shops like this. Would be fun to see what he has stored away in the back room, too!!
Adrian Reilly01-May-2006 12:30

Une photo d'un autre temps, sauf le petit a l'air dans le siécle mais il a une tête de condamné ;-)
Lloyd & Sandy Spitalnik30-Apr-2006 17:03
Love this shot JD. I thought it had an early 60s look. Excellent composition and tone. Voted. Sandy
Cindi Smith30-Apr-2006 15:27
Great shot! Reminds me of the old days! I used to go into the barber shop with my Dad when he went to get a haircut. Very, very cool image! Voted
Guenter Eh30-Apr-2006 15:08
Oh I love this old barber shops!!! (The water to wash the hairs was cooking in a kettle!) As everybody said -you did a classical here JD! So many interesting details to look at! A great pleasure and a fantastic idea! BTW the green toning fits perfect with the picture! Excellent job again - GMV!
Dia 30-Apr-2006 14:21
Elle a raison: superbe tableau au ton de nostalgie. J'aime le regard de ce jeune homme.
Guest 30-Apr-2006 12:51
What a wonderful composition you've captured. The barber still even has an old black rotary phone hanging on the wall. Classic. ~v~
Karen Stuebing30-Apr-2006 09:52
This photo has a timeless appeal. One thing about old fashioned barbers is you can get a shave. I've sent some of my clients who have let their beards go for weeks to the barbershop rather than try to shave them myself with a disposible razor. You just can't beat the power of a straight blade or the skill of the barber. Nice toning.
Heidi Jonker30-Apr-2006 07:29
Beautiful classic image and tones. Straight from the fourties I would have said if it were not for the boys 21th century sneakers ;-)
Greg Harp30-Apr-2006 04:38
Super capture--just classic. voted.
Marie-Hélène Raletz30-Apr-2006 03:42
Le pauvre garçon a l'air plutôt inquiet... il a tout de la victime expiatoire :)
Un tableau aux tons de nostalgie.
Guest 30-Apr-2006 03:18
Quelle superbe scène! saisie dans une très belle lumière et traitée avec soi. Le résultat est superbe. V
René30-Apr-2006 02:49

De'Carr Studio30-Apr-2006 02:33
Great candid, JD. Like the b/w takes me back a few year...well quite a few years.
Vilone30-Apr-2006 02:13
Great shot, JD! Nice tones!...talking about barber I need a hair but too! Nicely done!
Craig Persel30-Apr-2006 01:55

Belle lumiere sur le tablier, une belle image souvenir qui restera longtemps dans les memoires.
Pareil chez nous ! meme coupe, meme coiffeur...

Doug Kessler30-Apr-2006 01:10
Quite nostalgic! If it wasn't for the shoes, it could be of any era.
Excellent details and tones. V
Sheila30-Apr-2006 01:02
It's serious mens business, going to the barber.
Interesting shop!

VERY nice rural intimate caputure with prime nostalgic ambience.Exceptional!!!
René Lortie30-Apr-2006 00:36
Wow! un beau "clean-cut" ça fait du bien. Ton traitement est approprié au côté "old-fashioned" du barbier. Que de souvenirs....
J'aime le regard du boy.
laine8230-Apr-2006 00:16
And his chairs are more comfortable than we women get in our salons !!! Great image, JD.
