Shooting from doorless helicopters, this series has been photographed around the world from the U.S. to Brazil to Australia. From above, a simple beach or pool becomes a blank canvas that allows me to start seeing the world as art. People and objects become patterns creating repetition, shape and form. These photographs are a visual celebration of color, light, shape—and summer bliss.
Amazing DIY bathing suit.
I totally failed to get a vintage-esque swimsuit in time for Virginia Beach. I have some mixy-matchy bikinis and a utilitarian Speedo one-piece, but nothing that will make me feel like an old-fashioned bathing beauty. Sigh, maybe next summer.
