summer is (almost) here



I am currently trying to find as much inspiration as possible for photo adventures this summer. I will be all over the place and of course want to capture every essence of youth, recklessness, passion, naivete, and more in these photographs.

One of my favorite quotes from Hunter S. Thompson when it comes to summer is:

"Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish—a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow—to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love and not getting arrested . . . Res ipsa loquitur. Let the good times roll." - Gonzo Papers Vol. 2

I feel the following photos by Ryan McGinley display the above perfectly.

i always try and get inspired by certain films to make the most out of the summer, but then i get lazy and hate myself for it once school starts.
here's to a change in making something out of our youth!
