Hello friends.

My summer slowly came to an end this week. This set of photos display my
weekend in Laguna Beach, Irvine and Huntington Beach. There's something
about taking the 45 minute drive with a good friend out to the beach at
night, walking on a pier and having a real conversation. I feel the safest
spilling my most private thoughts and secrets next to the dark ocean,
listening to the sound of the waves crashing. School starts on Thursday
and I'm very excited to go back. My constant movement and involvement
in the world is making me remember what it was like to be 18 again....
back when I was completely enthusiastic about the future ahead of me.

I'd also like to share this video with you. We Were Promised Jetpacks are my
absolute favorite.

Listen and tell me what you think.

Great shots. I love the one of the wagons. Perfect!

Even though I'm tired of the heat I wish summer would last just a bit longer... I guess you can't have everything...

Kathryn said...

I have to agree with a previous comment... you take even the simplest of things and make them into beautiful pictures. Love! I know I asked you before but I've totally spaced, are they taken with an app or a polaroid camera? If it's an app, which one?! :)

Complimenti per le foto, a dir poco stupende, tutto curato nei minimi dettagli. Ti seguo!

Anche io sto cominciando a curare un blog personale-fotografico, dagli un occhio se ti va
