Floral Technicolor: Set I



These photographs are of my grandmother and grandfather during the 1950's and 1960's. My grandmother was a talented painter and illustrator with a keen eye for design. After my father was born, she dabbled in photography to catalogue family celebrations and her travels around the world. Her newfound hobby materialized into 100s of carefully curated photographs of flowers, San Francisco, and close friends. There are no words to describe how beautiful I find these pictures. Her delicate poses, pastel dresses, and radiant smile are ever-present in each image. 
I selected some of my favorite  photographs from her collection to share with you. I will feature some of her pictures from time to time because I find them to be an incredible source of inspiration and beauty. My grandmother looks like a "vintage fashion blogger, " don't you think?
