Make believe

April 10, 2013

Today it feels like spring. Okay, so in California, almost EVERY DAY feels like spring (except in the wintertime, when it’s damp and dreary and rainy, but that’s beside the point).

Today really really feels like spring. It’s the warmest day of the year so far and it’s starting to get light outside really early in the morning and tonight we’re cooking on the grill for the first time this season and yeah to me that’s pretty exciting.

I saw this photo series, Far Far Away (for Genlux Magazine by Daniel Castro), on my friend Shannon‘s blog and thought it was too neat not to reblog myself.

I love the way some of the elements of the photo remain the same (like the furniture, some of the props, the dog, and of course, the model), but some of the photo is watercolored over by illustrator Katie Rodgers. It gives it a 2D otherworldly effect… maybe even kind of an Alice in Wonderland feel? Reminds me of making believe and when we were children and imagining all the things we could become.

“Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” ~ the White Queen, Alice in Wonderland.

It even comes with an accompanying video, if that kind of thing strikes your fancy…
