It feels like Summers Creepin' in


 "I'm itchin' on a photograph
I'm giving up on looking back"

"Laugh Often, Love Much."

Stone Cold Fox
"In many ways they'll miss the good ol' days
someday... someday..."
- The Strokes
"Do not go where the path may lead,
go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."
Emerson

"My goal was, I wanted to be the best in the world."
Tony Alva 
 Most of the 70's Skate photos are from the book Locals Only by Hugh Holland.
I love the 70's and the Southern California culture of that time. The Iconic first photo of Stacy Peralta was shot by Craig Stecyk during the infamous Z Boys days.
That whole era has always been an inspiration to me. The carefree lifestyle, the clothes, the beach...need I go on?

Here in So Cal, it's just starting to feel like summer.
  It's been a little colder than normal lately and of course we just hit
"June Gloom" 
as we Californians call it. 
June is notoriously not the nicest of summer months and can be gloomy at the beach. 

But, for the past few days it's been quite beautiful and also quite breezy. 
A few days back we just did another fun shoot for Lori's Shoes which we will post soon. 
It was Inspired by the 70's and So Cal.

We just discovered this young band and are loving their sound.  
Check them out.

Beautiful post! These photos are lovely and so inspirational. I definitely need to check out that book. :)

I always associate LA with the 70s. So whenever I go there for vacay I am always shocked by how different it is from my imagination. I wish LA could have stayed in the 70s. Haha!

Lovely post! I love how you put the quotes in the midst of the awesome pictures!
Most of my family from back home in San Diego came over this weekend to visit me, and even though it's starting to feel like summer over here too, I wish I could go back with them all haha

Have a great day, ladies!

I love the bohemian look this summer, maybe it is because of the nostalgic feelings. When I was a teenager I discovered neil young and I am still a huge fan. There is not better music on a hot summer night than neil young. Sitting in the grass, wearing your oversized sweater, oh yeah, summer is creeping in. love this inspiration girls, because this is summer
