Bob Dylan's winter moments of reflection

They say an image is worth more than a thousand words, I'd include a video too in this quote. Yet making reference to this, the photograph below illustrates perfectly what is trying to be said by this quote. On it we have Bob Dylan taking a walk around a town's surroundings in the mid 60s. If I'm not mistaken it was taken during winter. Dylan is wearing an all black look, black military jacket, black shirt, black trousers, black shoes, black Wayfarers, and his signature hairstyle during this era.
Looking at this photo we see a thoughtful Bob Dylan, thinking and not wanting to be bothered. Sometimes we all need a few minutes or hours of solitude to think and make great plans for the future.

I don't use to think Bob Dylan as a stylish influence...besides from his wayfarer glasses maybe!but i do love his music....Mr.Tambourine man...

He had a couple interesting ensembles in the 60s and early 70s, I did a post sometime late 2009 about him too. His music is great, I stay with "Like A Rolling Stone".
