Life in Motion

Photographer's own vintage gown and jewels.

"Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness."

"Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. 
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees 
and the stars; you have a right to be here."

"And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt 
the universe is unfolding as it should."

I really loved the whimsical backdrop of these photos which were taken at The Boca Del Cielo Bed and Breakfast. The term boca del cielo means "the mouth of heaven." I really thought these images captured that notion. If you haven't had a chance to visit this charming Inn located right across the street from the picturesque beach boardwalk I suggest you make the time to visit what I can only describe as heaven's gate. 


PS: All photographs were taken by Maggie of I featured another series of here pictures, here. I encourage you to view her webpage, Maggie's work is breath taking!

  4. Really delightful...kinda reminds me of Breakfast at Tiffany's...just because it's this very glamourous gown, but taken down a notch by the styling/surroundings. Love it!
