Just another diamond day

Alternate title: The 60's called, they want their stuff back.

When I shoot indoors it's usually rubbish and because I left it too late to go outside. Today the weather was rubbish so I tried indoors again, and I had a concept idea, the 60's (how vague can you get?) It turned out quite well, it was fun, and the photos turned out quite fun (I think so anyway). The vinyls are some signed 7" EP's and singles that I won in a contest a few years ago. The typewriter I got at a charity shop for a few pounds, I love the colour and it types perfectly. I love the reaction photo, the glasses are my real glasses, and yes, I do wear them because I really am quite short sighted.

Title is a Vashti Bunyan song, go listen to her, she's lovely. Especially her stuff from the 60's (see the connection? Yeah, I'm so clever).

Wearing: Dress: thrifted vintage; shirt: thifted; sunglasses: asos; glasses: lyle & scott.
