i love this series of photographs by Monica Sanchez taken with a Nikon FM2 – a film camera that i also use. it makes me want to go out and buy a roll of film (and is also helping the summer psyching). check out her flickr.
welcome beyond is a website “showcasing the most beautiful and unique vacation homes & boutique hotels around the world” or “hand-picked paradise” – as they put it. well, that’s handy.
as a kid my family would often go on camping trips, especially up the coast during the holidays. my parents had this huge canvas tent that was super complicated to put up – but the end result was a harry-potter like palace that could sleep all six of us. perhaps not a palace. i can still remember the smell of that tent… hot grass and sunscreen.
it’s almost a month till christmas. and if your supermarkets are anything like ours, you’ve been bombarded with christmas music since october. if only they’d play this holiday album from target, filled with tunes from rad bands like wavves, best coast and coconut records amongst others. you’ll be able to download the songs for free on 28 november.
here’s some visual inspiration to celebrate the fact that we’re only about a month away from summer holidays. and for everyone reading this who are north of the equator… muwahahaaaaaaaaaaa.
let’s run away together and just do this. photos by anna v. + marek s.
