It’s finally here: the weekend that officially marks the start of summer! (At least, in my book.)
Anyone who knows me—or occasionally checks in on me, here—knows that I’m a total summer girl. I live for long, sunny days; beach weekends; steamy weather; and as much time in the sunshineВ as I can possibly manage.
I’m having a very-NYC Memorial Day weekend: going to a friend’s BBQ in Brooklyn, tomorrow, and to the beach (Rockaway) on Monday—as long as the weather holds out.
Have a wonderful holiday weekend! And until next week, some interesting links from around the web:
The photo above is from an awesome-looking exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York: In the early 1960s, Aaron Rose photographed Coney Island beachgoers. His intimate portraits have a romantic, nostalgic feel. (The very effects that we’re always tryingВ to create on our snapshots with Instagram and other photo programs!)
This even earlier shot of Coney Island, from 1947—can you believe the crowd?!
Speaking of Rockaway—have you seen this proposal to bring a glampground there?
Um, this has to be one of the craziest ballet photos I’ve seen!
For those of us superstitious about 8s and 4s—this made me laugh.
