tan lines and dirty soles

it’s summer, the sandal tan lines on my feet prove it, as do the polaroids taken in hammocks and balconies, in lakes and at late night tire swing conversations. and the time of farewells for this blonde beauty as she travels back to the place called paradise and the place that sent her here in […]

4 days

4 days away. almost no planning. walking and talking. escaping. pizza, coffee, gelato, crazy waiters and a friend who patiently waits as you set up camera angles on napkins and menus, just so you get that one good photo of the two of you. thanks for the memories. r/
