Some experimental photos in Subic seascape. It was windy and sunny that day, which makes for a perfect mini photo shoot. The tribal print sweater is an old one from my sister, it's quite heavy, super thick and is surprisingly long. And that red book, is not a music book. Actually, its filled with inspiring and breathtaking photos of Russia, captured by Andrew Moore.

By the way, that little boy wearing a Jap kimono is my nephew EJ. The one whipping her hair is my photographer/sister Vi. And the lady below, wearing royal blue garments against turquoise blue water, is none other than me. Here's my ensemble before I transformed into a strange pianist.

Wearing a XXL Ralph Lauren dress, thrifted jacket with map of Paris that I tied around the waist, silver necklace from Tibet and my old moss round sunglasses.

And this shooting sounds very creative indeed Dear Noelle !!! Like a conceptual aesthetic symphony declined in the middle of seascape's (kindly haunting) strangeness . . .

à Bientôt, Antoine

What a wicked shoot! Love experimenting with water. Reaally like the 5th one with all that long hair. So mysterious and ritualistic. btw you are a pro at creating layers with shirts at the waist! Love it.

Ps. Sweet of you to ask :p we're both safe and well in Auckland.

The beach looks so warm, sparkly and plain gorgeous--I want to jump right in it! Where is this?

I agree with the other commenters... The photos have a free-spirit vibe, it could have an Enya soundtrack in the background. :)

Anne said...

I like the jacket tied on the waist and with your extra large dress!

Noelle Chantal said...

Hi, Aya!

I guess you're just new here. Experimental shooting is nothing new to my blog and to my readers. The pictures from that photography book (Russia), is my inspiration for these great photos and location. :)

By the way, thanks for liking the necklace! And yes, that lady celebrating her 28th year, is me. Also, thanks for following my fashion/landscape blog!
