As today’s weepy weather reminds us – everything is fleeting – including the fun days of summer.
Sure we have about a month more of it, but if you haven’t taken time to go to the beach, don a bathing suit or lounge in the sun, these gorgeous Tom Palumbo images will inspire you to snap to it and do so asap.
While his work was versatile, as a staff photographer at Vogue then Bazaar, Palumbo created indelible images of ideal summertime bliss.
Often photographing the great Jean Patchett and Anne Saint Marie, he caught moments of seaside frolicking that feel both exquisitely fashionable and quietly personal.
He taught for a time at my alma mater, RISD and was also an accomplished stage director.
His website features great galleries to peruse and some of my favorites from him are below and after the jump.
But what do you think?
