When I first saw this shoot, it reminded me so clearly of a camping trip Bay and I took a couple of years ago, in the absolute dead of winter, to our all-time favourite camping spot on the coast. It was absolutely freezing, so the beachside camping ground was deserted, and we spent the afternoon walking along the beach drinking beers and collecting shells that fitted like rings.
It was also one of our first camping trips together, so we were totally unprepared for dead-of-winter cold and had to make a giant nest out of our clothes and sleeping bags.
But it was such a beautiful place, not far from where this winter sneak peek from Spell and the Gypsy Collective was shot, and I still think about it all the time.
It is possible that I have a little homesickness for a camping ground.
Anyway, I thought this was a refreshing antidote to all the Coachella/spring/summer images floating around... we're heading into winter here in Australia, and I definitely need to think about rugging up -- this will be my first Melbourne winter and I am deeply, deeply afraid.
