Today is the first day of summer! And I love this picture! Therefore, I will title this blog post, "The Summer of Love!"
So, technically, this is not the Summer of Love. The actual Summer of Love was in 1967 - fifty years ago! Do you even know what it was?
"The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that occurred during the summer of 1967, when as many as 100,000 people, mostly young people sporting hippie fashions of dress and behavior, converged in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury neighborhood." ~ from Wikipedia
Anyway, when I did this shoot, I always though that the model had a very "hippie" look and so I did a little editing and came up with this version.
For what it's worth ( and for anyone wondering ), I was not yet born when the Summer of Love arrived. Close, but not yet...
