Reuben Again!


I ran into Reuben again!  I first met him here (you gotta check this one out!) in April, 2010 and was quite taken with his appearance and coveted his jewelry.  As DH and I were going into the LaFonda for breakfast on Sunday morning we ran into him.  For relative strangers who see one another once or twice every couple years, we greeted each other warmly.  He is a delightful man and certainly quite colorful!!

  1. I have a fetish for hands. I like the veins in this one. The rest is a little flamboyant for me, I am sad to say.

  2. He looks like he is as stylish today as he was when you met him nearly two years ago. He is wearing the same necklace, with good reason.

  3. I bet he can talk for hours, and every story is fun and interesting.

  5. Love your choice of image - that hand with rings and bracelet/watch, plus the beautiful coat, belt buckle and well-worn leather gloves, tell you very well who you are dealing with here!

  7. «Louis» had forgotten about La Fonda! His mother loved to go there when visiting Santa Fe.

  8. A colorful character indeed! Bet his personality is as Big and Sunny as your adopted New Mexico!

    Love that Turquoise! You captured Him well!

  9. Terrific, Kate. I admire a guy who dresses with such self-confidence and style. I use the excuse that clothes like his aren't made in 46 extra long, and that the jewelry doesn't fit my (former) professional role, but that is admittedly an excuse.

    Your comment about recently reading a book about John Singer Sargent and Madame X was interesting. My wife and I went to the Boston Museum of Fine Art last summer to see the new American wing, and Sargents abounded. She bought and read a book about the marvelous MFA painting of the Daughters of [names?] Boit, and I read a book this year by David McCullough in which Sargent figures prominently. Yes, Madame X was a scandal at the time, however tame it seems today. Three quarters of the young women I see today on the street will show more cleavage than Madame X did.

  10. I'd characterize that as an "Only in Santa Fe" look. Glad you remembered to catch his hand this time. Quite a guy!
