HAPPY 4TH OF JULY x TRIBUTE TO DETROIT

July 2, 2014 0 Permalink

Last weekend I went to Detroit and it was amazing. I had a very strong pull to go to what used to be, at one point, the wealthiest city in the world and the face of American invention and culture (think the Model T Ford and Motown music).

I decided to shoot my 4th of July outfit photos there because it felt like a true American city even though it’s going through hard times, it’s buzzing with enthusiasm about its future, the people of Detroit are holding each other’s hands to rebuild itself and I thought that was such a powerful a reflection of America’s strength and what makes this country fabulous!

I really enjoyed shooting this blog post because I have so much fun wearing the colors that make up the USA flag and I love stripes (Milk Stripes), so I love a day that I can indulge!!!

Hope you enjoy my photos and Happy 4th of July!
