I LOVE THESE PHOTOS. yes, caps lock. they make me want to jump into a time machine and be right there on those beaches in the sixties without a care in the world. they were taken by leroy grannis
i decided to start scanning in all our old family photographs, mostly for safety’s sake – but also to share some of the pretty radical images my parents have in their archives. you can see the complete (and growing) set here.
the best thing about looking at old photos of your parents is realising that most everyone is the same when they’re young (beer! braai! party hats! dancing! fun!). [check out that speedo in the background]
hey dorks, it’s art history time. if you’re not familiar with the classic frontier paintings by albert bierstadt – you will be now. you owe it to yourself to stare at these bad boys. that light! that detail! oh wow, i could just imagine a million reproductions hanging in thrift stores & seventies living rooms the world over and not getting a second glance (shame).
she has a nice flickr gallery & some cool fashion photography
