LAVENDER BY THE BAY
Purple never looked so pretty!!! I mean- dah! Anna and I have been patiently waiting for this summers field of choice to be Long Islands Lavender by the Bay. We missed bloom season last summer and so to make sure we didn’t repeat our mistakes- we organized a trip with the best of friends and headed out East!
Long Islanders listen to me- this spot is a gem!! It may be a little bit of a hike but if planned for, this quaint little farm could make for the perfect summer afternoon! The people there have a contagious passion for Long Island and making it more beautiful with their lovely Lavender so definitely add it to next summers bucket list- I know I’ll be going back!
Anyway- hand in hand with my roommate slash other half and precious little sisters, I got to give my CONTAX 645 a whirl and shoot my first roll at the perfect spot! The soft pastels and lush purple made me feel like I was in a dream! It also def made us a little sleepy- it’s true what they say, those flowers are crazy calming! Which might have come in handy since there were bees EVERYWHERE. but don’t fret! They were the cute, fat and fuzzy kind. You know- Winnie the Pooh bumble bees. Those poor babies are going extinct so I had a blast discovering where they all live now! Lol
But in all seriousness- don’t let that stop you. The bees were so inundated with flowers they could care less about us and our spur of the moment photos so keep calm and carry on gents! And enjoy a piece of our lovely day amongst the lavender
P.S. It’s like- I don’t even need to do a thing, my friends are just so gorgeous!! Make those lavenders pale in comparison.
