Memories of Childhood by Mandy Lynne

Mandy Lynne's Website Her Etsy Shop

I'm in complete awe of photographer, Mandy Lynne's, talent. Her images take me back to carefree days and stir up sweet memories. Remember the last days of Summer, preparing for and maybe even dreading the onset of school, running through and plunging into piles of crunchy leaves? These lovely images are a great reminder of simpler days. And, if you want a real treat visit Mandy's website for a dreamy slide show with mesmerising music in the background.

Here's what Mandy said when I asked her what inspired her:

"My desire right now is to express myself artistically through COLOR

COLOR always fascinates me.. the surprising way in which the SHADES
compliment each other, the MOOD they create, the way COLOR defines
different decades..

I've had a long love affair with vintage... and to combine this style with
a modern set of FRESH COLORS, gives it new life."

Mandy, thank you for the honor of featuring your work......perfection. :)
