WE’VE GOT THE VISION, NOW LETS HAVE SOME FUN-

I just realized that these most recent updates make it seem like I’ve been on permanent vacation for the past few months. Not the case. In fact, that couldn’t be farther from the truth… it’s just no fun to blog about sitting in front of a computer monitor working until 2am every night eating cereal straight from the box.

That said, here’s another round of photos from where I’m imagining myself right now-

FAST AND THE FURIOUS-

Today Anthony and I braved hundred degree temperatures and an hour long detour into Pennsylvania to shoot a collection of custom hot-rods built by the gentlemen over at Geils Automotive in Milford New Jersey.

Most of their outside work starts out like this– a client will usually bring in three beat up old cars and the Geils team will pool together all the working parts to turn these thousand pound piles of rust into 700 horsepower speed demons.

This one is from 1929.

Every one of these cars came with half a dozen stories. This one was complete with a tale about getting shot at while speeding down 11th avenue in Manhattan in the mid 70’s.

I don’t know anything about cars but this one can go from 0-170 mph in about 8 seconds.

This bad boy was my personal favorite. Complete with a full tank of NOS right in the trunk.

DISPOSABLE BUT INDISPENSABLE-

Here’s some pictures from a half dozen disposable cameras that I’ve kept in my Weekender bag this summer. Most of the time the cameras get damaged with water or sand, light leaks into the film, and the auto focus has a mind of it’s own, but the shots all remind me of summer camp, fun times, and how important it is to actually smile for a picture occasionally.

No captions.

POOL PARTY!!!

What a cute couple they make together, right?! Those are the Reason Commanders sunglasses in Matte Black on the left and in Polished Tortoise on the right. Oh? The people? Yea I guess Price and Aubrey are pretty darn adorable too.

Party was crackin’ all day. Open bar, BBQ, 22 foot water slide, blasting sound system, tons of giveaways, pretty much the epitome of what a perfect pool party should be.

I posted a picture of Augie wearing this same t-shirt last week.

Fourth of July. Georgica Mondays. East Hampton. Good vibes. Good people. America. Was that a haiku?
