{light & shadow}


. . . quite the adore the beautifully atmospheric, nearly hazy tone of this summer editorial, the perfect play of light and shadow, and the feeling that something unbelievably romantic could happen at any moment . . .

{p.s.} lovely things on the side project:
* ruffles & blossoms
* tailored elegance

  • felicity — actually think it looks rather charming :)

    also, have been seeing quite a lot of loose-fitting stockings in editorials recently — rather a bit of a fashion trend at the moment, i should think…

  • what a great site. i’m really enjoying your posts!

  • Beautiful!

  • i love her hair most of all! & i agree about the romantic bit :) it looks as though a man will turn up any moment, twirl her around & bring her off to have a little romantic picnic with that picnic basket of hers.

  • Every photo shows a moment in time captured that echos a sense of spontaneity and adventure. You’re so right in saying it’s like something romantic could happen at any moment. Wonderful post, as always.
