Midcentury Nostalgia

Summer is the right time to go on vacation. But where?
Whether you have plans to go abroad or just plan on relaxing where you live, I just wanted to share with some inspirational and relaxing pictures from the 50s and early 60s in North America. 

Driving in your Cadillac, passing by avenues packed with palm trees and art deco houses or even having a bath by the sea…These photos instantly transport me to a quiet and warm place. 
Seeing these photos makes me want to visit the States again. I’m thinking on doing a blog post about my experiences there – I think they’d be useful – so expect a bunch of new articles coming up soon! 

And I’m definitely visiting Palm Springs next time I’m there! Looks like paradise to me 🙂
Hope you are all enjoying the month of July. It’s bloody hot in Spain!

Vintage Los Angeles

It’s Sunday, and what’s more interesting than seeking a bit of inspiration from an iconic city like Los Angeles? Since I am visiting The City of Angels in September and I am currently looking for cool places and things to see and do, I cam across some vintage pictures that I thought I could share with you guys on here.
Some photographs belong to the 60s, the 50s or even before. Cool, huh?

I can’t wait to be there this September, although I’ve heard the city is not a big deal. Anyway, I am pretty excited to know more about this glamorous and iconic city.

Downtown LA was always crowded thanks to its boutiques and grocery stores. Here are some vintage photographs from Downtown Los Angeles int the 1930s or 1940s. 

Busy day in the city centre! 
As you might have noticed, nearly all the photographs feature cars. Los Angeles is also known for its long distances, which makes owning a car a necessity. This pic is from the 1950s! That’s insane.
Hope you enjoyed my quick post with some cool photographs from Los Angeles. If you want to see more, you can head to Vintage Los Angeles and travel back in time. 

Have a great start of the week! x

1950s-1960s America through Vivian Maier

Have you ever heard of Vivian Maier? Her work has been untold and hidden from the world during years, but recently the world became aware of her beautiful photographs taken during the 50s, 60s and 70s in the United States. Maier worked as a maid and during the time she served as one, she photographed the ordinary lives of the people on the street.

Here are some of my favorite photographs taken by her. Enjoy!

Quick post because I am super busy with my new job at the moment! Anyway, I have a big surprise for you all soon. Stay tuned!
