Sometimes in life we have to let ourselves be distracted by the crowds of change surrounding us. We have to let ourselves go and just revel in the romance of summer. And that is precisely what I've done for the last few months. It's been a give and take of change, new faces, and far away places. However, this blog has been on my mind through every last moment of it. So, with summer's end in sight, my friends and I decided to pack up the car and escape to the place where the ocean meets the sand. For this shoot I wanted to celebrate the place that gives so many of us New Yorkers a bit of warm weather refuge: the beach. A place where the sea breeze carries your troubles away, where concrete walls are replaced by boundless blues and sun-shiny-hues, allowing you to just relax and snuggle up with the sand.
The idea here was to see what we could scavenge up on a previous afternoon of Williamsburg vintage/flea shopping with only a smidgen of a budget. So, we hit up Artists and Fleas and 10 Ft. Single by Stella Dallas, among others, and found ourselves some fun, colorful pieces to take to the beach.
A special thanks to first-time model and dear friend Björn Elgerd for lending his sublimely beautiful pose, and to Adam Davis for getting us from here to there and back again.
To our summer.
