Long time, no see.. huh? If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw a week ago that I was wondering if I should show you my collection of sunglasses..if you don't follow me, you should! (biu_braicu)
I don't really like to call myself a collector,well.. maybe when it comes to life. I love to collect memories, not things. So I'll just say that I love sunglasses,hats,bags...accessories in general because they complete our outfits and that's why I have a bunch of them. I don't care about the brand, I don't care about the shape or the color. They just have to fit me, in time I've discovered that a lot of them do and that's how I accomplished the sweet number of 42 sunglasses. (list 100% not finished)
Do wanna know how much I've payed for this pair?
...*drums* 1$, bought them from Forever 21 in Los Angeles two years ago. They're chic & work well with almost any casual outfit.
I shall go on, I want to show you my very first pair of sunnies. Fell in love with them since day one, I'd still wear them but they're extra small.
They're super dirty (I know) and broken and and and... but they're my first love! <3
I'll add some pictures taken in time wearing sunnies in different instances. Take a look ->
And now... the pictures you've been expecting, the whole collection:
I hope you all enjoyed my post! One last photo to put a smile on your face and to show you how I'll my rock my last pair of sunnies! Hahahah lol
Is it just me or time passes by too quick? It's Saturday, a special one. Happy Easter guys, this isn't the only reason we should be celebrating, well yeah...it sure is one of them but my point is that life is amazing and we should not only gather together and celebrate it on special occasions, we should do it every single day.
Why am I writing this right now? Oh well, because I remember when I shot these pictures. I was so excited for them to come out and now they did. I couldn't wait to post them but I also enjoyed the process. I started to enjoy the process. The process of waiting, being patient. This isn't about photos, it's about life itself. In all its meanings. Feel me?!
It's also Spring, probably my favorite season. Well, not really but it's cool hahah.
Don't flowers make you happy? They always bloom into something big and wonderful and colorful. They also smell great & even when their time passes they still remain beautiful.
This was the the idea of the shoot in the first place. We had to do it for Lucy's Magazine and I thought that the best theme for it should be fresh flowers and dry flowers. Maybe because they show every side of the story and still find beauty in every part. Like we should always do. I love it when natures inspires, sometimes it can be hard to find inspiration.
Art comes from the inside and then it goes out, this is how it worked out this time. Thank you so much Amalia Gaita for one of the best shoots ever.
Two of these photos were selected in Lucy's Magazine March issue. This the exact link if you want to take a look: https://issuu.com/lucysmagazine/docs/lucys2017spring/22?reader3=1 It was an amazing opportunity for me & I will thank Ramona Atkin for it. Thank you. It is so nice to have your work recognized in an International magazine.
Enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoyed shooting them. Happy Happy Easter! <3 LOVE
