The Escape

The Great Escape. Leaving all you know behind and taking that ride, the ride… riding on over the borderlines. Packing that bag – full to the brim – with all things leather and lace, fringe and weathered cowboy boots…. and of course, that dear ol’ faithful hat to top it all off.

Ending up in a no man’s land seems suddenly… not quite so…  it’s every man’s land. A new frontier. A frontier for open minds and dancing stillness.  Opportunity to explore and create without haste, without doubt. The everything’s and the nothing’s are vast, much like the rolling hills and endless skylines they dwell within. Suddenly, quiet has its own sound. A sound  every man will begin to move to, as long as they give patience its rightful time; for it’s this great escape, in all its unassuming nature, that will truly set us free.

I love these pictures – But 6 of them are the models wrapped up in blankets and wraps…. A little variety of the poses would have been nice. Other than that – a great spread. Love the outfits.

Creativity is great. Ripping off the creativity integrity and innovation of originality. This catalog and shoot is 100 percent a rip-off of a store and company called Honeywood Vintage, owned, created and photographed Vanessa Dingwell. This woman took vintage fabrics and created her own dresses, and styles and photographs in a field and has been doing so for years. This is crap and NOT Original!!!

I know Vanessa from Honeywood and can honestly say, you don’t know what you’re talking about. Vintage and fields are not copywritten. Get a Pinterest account and see how much of an idiot you sound like.

Wow… I just stumbled upon this. I’m flattered that anyone on here knows who I am! Yes, I have been shooting Mexican wedding dresses, crochet, floppy hippy hats and block print Indian textiles in the California landscape for years, I have to agree with AJ. No one has a copyright on bohemia and outdoor photography. Its a gorgeous spread! Cheers Free People!

I absolutely love the dark fringe vest with the white angelic dress! Heavy and light unite!

This is what I look for in the designer collections. Classy and sophisticated.
