Mom, this is the best I can do. As much as I want to click away, I try to show photographic restraint at equestrian events, Hermès parties, and the like so as not to look like a tourist.

Unfortunately, there is one thing I have found. Like old-row boys driving down 13th St. in black Tahoes shielded by Costas... polo players in white pants riding Argentinian Thoroughbreds in France are always better from a distance. It's depressing, but true. Better I learn it now.

Girls look better in sundresses and by candlelight, men look better in white pants, everyone looks better at Gallette's and polo players and fratdaddies are better at a distance. Oh well.

so true mcnutt,
one always thinks ttown in full of gorgeous boys but mysteriously you only spot them driving in their black tahoes on 13th... they are elusive and rarely spotted in real life. always better when seen from afar... I am glad to hear france has a similar phenonemon
