These are so beautiful. The gorgeous girl bowling - I want to be her! She's so happy and has the most beautiful legs...

love all of these pictures! the one with the picnic with giant waves is pretty cool:). of course i bowl and would kill to look graceful doing so like the first pic. Chances are, my undies would for sure show! xo

Pretty Little World said...

I'm somehow quite partial to the car photos - you would think that something so mundane wouldn't be that interesting, but the photos are a bit mesmerizing.

Char said...

love the inspiration - I love when I look at something and think "I wish I had taken that"

These are marvelous and timeless. I love them! One of the best things I've looked at as I make my blog-o-rounds tonight. I love it when artists can let go of being so serious and arty that they forget to be human. The humor and joy in these are what make them timeless to me. That first shot is killer.
