Feel Good Photography!

I just adore the work of photographer Slim Aarons!  Looking through his body of work it is easy to see that he loved water and glamourous people!

He began working as a photographer in the 1950's and photographed many celebrities ...

he really captures the California culture perfectly!

To see more of his gorgeous pics look here!

You can see a lot of detail in the photos even from a distance.

I adore his stunning coffee table book. It captures a time lost and offers endless design inspiration for me.
