I don't think that we have a name for this gesture. But at the same time, I thought we borrowed that from the Italians. Any Italians around?


I'm not certain what the gesture itself is called, but in french you'd exclaim "magnifique!" along with or in lieu of said gesture. High praise, in any language.

Perhaps the French "Beau Geste"? Anyway I missed out on the first Turnley print but not this time!

Whoooo Hooo! If he offers this one: http://www.peterturnley.com/printsite/page09.php

It will be mine! All MINE! AHAHAHA! (perhaps the maniacal laugh was a bit over the top, but I am excited)

i'm French (Canadian) and bellissimo is what comes to mind. Can't wait to see what you picked.

And for the first day of summer in the Northern Hemisphere, may I suggest a print sale from Jim Richardson's archive? For example: Huge thunderheads out on the plains.

Cool! I was regretting missing the first sale - it was bad timing for me financially. But this time I am ready. I am looking forward to seeing the selections.

You're going to torture me again? Maybe I shouldn't have bought that new lens yesterday!

Seriously, this is cool, and who knows, I might feel rich this time.

I got one from the first sale. Way expensive for me, but worth it.

Bring'em on.

I'm down for a print!

No name known either, from here in France... We just do it. The turkish expression "çok güzel" comes to my mind, though.

It could just be my first purchase as well. I'm looking forward to seeing the selection!

Wow, I didn't know him and I'm normally not very much into street photography (I usually find it rather boring I must confess), but I really like his pictures - especially the b/w ones from Paris. I really dig his compositions.

Ed is absolutely right. Some similar expressions : craquant(e) (dishy,handsome) ;impec - for impeccable (flawless); nickel (perfect(ly).

Oh! and totaly OT, help me : one favorite expression of Barkley Rosser, speaking of Paul Krugman works: pop-schlop !

What is this, pop-schlop? Mister Rosser seem more often then not very very bitter, indeed.(Aigri)...

Sorry for Peter, I miss the most important: this girl is craquante. And this picture is Nickel!

Loved the image. I'd love to have a print but there is a certain responsibility with such ownership. So I await Peter's next book, and did find a copy of the "Pariseans" at a reasonable price.

I am still amazed by my purchase from the 2010 sale, but I am still terrified to frame it incorrectly! It is still in the packaging, only pulled out now and then to view.

I have a huge soft spot for a Parisian street photography and every time Peter's work shows up on this site I regret missing out on the first sale. I won't make that mistake again!

"magnifique!", over superb food, for example.
