I found this construction site to be quite…beautiful and almost poetic. The old mill sitting against a backdrop of sprawling city sprouting with new high rises and other urban-cessities. Welcome to the Concrete Jungle <cue Axl Rose>

And drum roll please……the Emma Cook boots I got from the UK. They are 5 inches of glorious leather, rubber, and tassled laces. Rather arduous to get a hold of, but totally worth it. I love how they don’t really subscribe to any particular kind of ‘style’…which is perfect for me….

    I didn’t find mine on eBay until maybe after 3 months of prowling?
    Yes, that’s a lot of daily prowling.

    The “One bare shoulder effect” of the first Picture is virulently Bewitching, just like a subtle movement both graceful and (Mmmh wrongly ? Here besides all its sensual mystery) nonchalant . . .

    I love the light in these photos & the first photo is really wonderful.

  6. Vanessa says:

    Thanks so much!! The lighting was not manipulated at all (a common question I got with these photos)…we just caught sunset right before it ended. Pretty sweet and serendipitous.
