It was only a matter of time before this picture happened.

Blogger Clemence and me said ... (4:08 PM) : 

Wonderful!!! I like it so classy and modern in the same time.


Blogger Anastasios said ... (4:09 PM) : 

Excellent capture. Luck is often a factor for a good capture.
Your framing and focusing is great too though.


Blogger Einwegkamera said ... (4:11 PM) : 

soooooo funny, but gorgeouse.


Blogger Anna said ... (4:11 PM) : 

love that you catch that moment!


Anonymous mll mag said ... (4:11 PM) : 

excellent ;)


Blogger Angel said ... (4:11 PM) : 

Hahaha! Not quite as elegant as a bicycle but I guess this is about as fabulous as it gets on a segway. I'll go with Geek-chic.

Absolutely brilliant!
Not sure whether it's quite as classy as a bike, but at least it's fun.
And I do like the way his hat is flicking up slightly in the wind!


Blogger Leigh said ... (4:12 PM) : 

Wow! Such a juxtaposition of classic and style and futuristic technology. Love that the scooter is in a snazzy red ;)


Blogger The 3rd Floor studio said ... (4:13 PM) : 

Nice capture!!


Anonymous Maggie said ... (4:13 PM) : 

It's a classy-looking Segway, too. That's probably the highlight.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:14 PM) : 

he is totally on point with the red trend! haha! great capture.


Anonymous Laura said ... (4:15 PM) : 

That is so funny. I thought it was Anthony Hopkins and then I scrolled down and saw the wheelie thing. Although it is similar to the thing they wheel him out on on Silence of the Lambs.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:16 PM) : 

Haha! It just made me laugh. Great snapshot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:19 PM) : 

Excellent pic! There's always been a latent streak of infantilism in Italian men and technology is helping to bring it right up to the surface.


Blogger Unknown said ... (4:20 PM) :

iLove and its cute that yot're posting simultaneously with Garance ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:22 PM) : 

The juxtaposition of the modern segway and the classic hat, scarf, overcoat combo is beautiful. Perfect blending of new and old... even the backdrop plays a part, the old church mixed with the stop light and motorcycles. Incredible.

Hahaha! great!!


Blogger caribbelle said ... (4:25 PM) : 

This is great! About 6 years ago when I was in Rome, I saw a few of these, and they weren't tourists so I guess Italians have been ahead of the curve. I love the red.


Blogger my.amalgam said ... (4:27 PM) : 

haha so true,

just wait until heels will be out and segways will be in!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:29 PM) : 

Nice picture and indeed 'a matter of time', hehe!

Blogger Unknown said ... (4:43 PM) : 

I love it! I kind of giggled a bit at this photo due to noticing how technology is truly revolutionizing the world. Now fashionable people such as this man will be cruising around the streets in segways.
Check out my trendy blog!


Anonymous HW90 said ... (4:44 PM) : 

Even this finely dressed gentleman falls prey to the undeniable truth: nobody looks cool on a segway.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:04 PM) : 

not cool. terrible. (not your photo may i add) plus hes going to be 50st heavier in about 2 years thanks to that segway, hes not going to look so sartorially elegant then.

Kind of defeats the purpose, in my opinion. Hard to look like anything but silly on one of those things.


Blogger UESman said ... (5:32 PM) : 

This is truly a milestone for me...and for all of humankind...On this day, February 24 2011, I see before me a well dressed man on a segway. I shall tell my grandchildren of this day and the man who took this photo!


Blogger Christina said ... (5:33 PM) : 

I too thought that was Anthony Hopkins! I hate segways but think this man is actually much cooler and infinitely better dressed than your average segway I love it!

Blogger Sabrina Tassini said ... (5:43 PM) : 

what a funny picture!durin the fashion week we see very strange thing:)


Anonymous C said ... (5:44 PM) : 

The inherent funniness of a person on a Segway is directly proportionate to the seriousness of said person.

Clown on a Segway? Not that funny.
Grumpy Michael Arrington on a Segway? Very funny.

This kind of falls somewhere in between.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:45 PM) : 

This is the best dressed segway rider I have ever seen.

It's a great photo, but I don't like the man.Above is a gentleman, below a nut


Blogger CW said ... (5:56 PM) : 

Great shot!

As it is in Italy, will Segway cut into Vespa and its similar bikes?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:56 PM) : 

I don't know about this "classy" business. However, this contraption does look a less ridiculous than the ones mall security officers use in the States. In this, yes, I'll concede to "modern".
Still not a fan.

How amusing. It's not just Ferrari red, it's actually a Ferrari limited edition Segway. Great picture.

Now that looks like fun. I've seen a couple of those here in NYC. I don't know how well they work in busy streets though.

These things are hilarious. They remind me of my months in Firenze. Although, that is certainly the most stylish person I have seen frequent such machines!

Many years ago, a time that many of us are old enough to remember, pictures of what the future was to be like were all over the place from world of tomorrow magazines to television science programs like Here Come The Seventies and Omnibus... Events like Montreal's Expo67, world fairs and countless science and technology museums showed models and prototypes of what the future might hold. Moving sidewalks and flying cars and the like...This image vividly brings back all of those times visiting the many different places and events with wonder in the eyes and imagination whirling with fantasy(sic).

As much as these have been maligned at times the image is very much, 'the future is now'.

Thanks Scott for re-igniting a little bit of nostalgic imagination and the freshness of childhood too often lost in the all too easily jaded world of adulthood. Thank you for bringing back that sensation of wonder and imagination in this all grow'd up child's eyes of so many yester-years and days gone by!

Such a small world! I was watching Iron Man this afternoon and one of the characters used that bike, except it was black and seemed to be used for long but short distances, if that makes any sense!!
I feel its just a bit different from the norm, probably why so many of the viewers can't see it as classy, its new, take a while to get used to, but heyy, let's hope fashion will quickly embrace this new tech!
Can you imagine this on next season's runways? ;)

Definitely the best dressed man I've ever seen on a segway. I always laugh at people on segways - it just reminds me of Arrested Development!

The worst accessory! I hate them!
If you just took it out of the picture, then it would be a nice style capture...


Anonymous William Biga said ... (1:12 AM) : 

I snorted with laughter when I saw this picture. Regardless of how useful the device is, I will always associated it with Gob from "Arrested Development".

Here in San Francisco, when the weather is nice you can sometimes spot whole tour groups of people, wearing bike helmets and fanny packs, buzzing about on their Segways. Darting through parks, and maneuvering traffic in perfect, unspoken unison-- like a school of fish.
