an abandoned pool has been a source of inspo for awhile now. i had this vision of doing an editorial shoot, but could never find a pool. one spring-in-february friday, i drove north to an old swim club that used to exist in the 70's in hopes that it would still be around. while that wasn't the case, i came across an abandoned motel right off a busy two-lane highway. i pulled over instantly. a run down motel with bright pink doors, chipped paint and sure enough, to my right, a pool. thank you, universe.

i drove these two out to what i had found earlier that morning and we made some magic. you know the feeling when everything you had envisioned about a particular concept/idea comes to life. it was the first time these two had been photographed together and man, was it fun.
