Eye Candy

P.S. I Love You

Every now and then Erica sends us an unsolicited photo album from out of the blue with some really sweet description. She said this one is of “two dandelions in love.” We’ll take it.

    So much love in Rookie in just one day! February is going to be a good month!

    this is great. consider me obsessed.

  • PlainLo February 2nd, 2012 7:41 PM

    This is lovely, you can almost make a story out of these pictures! And those blue shoes with sparkly things are amazing.

    P.S.: congrats on today’s background, young Leo wearing a pinky ring is something to be celebrated. Actually, young Leo wearing anything should be celebrated.

    I mean it’s just “DANDY” baha. Puns never fail me.

    Those are some serious crowns there, girls. Where were the photos taken? It reminds me just a bit of Australia for some reason..


  • AnguaMarten February 2nd, 2012 8:00 PM

    i love everything about this photo series!

  • Thepunkrocker February 2nd, 2012 8:08 PM

    so cute

  • thebrighterside February 2nd, 2012 8:12 PM

    these are amazing and i love the head pieces!

  • jackie February 2nd, 2012 8:28 PM

    just wonderful shots, a clever concept and just a lovely appearance wondering what camera these were take with?

  • marit February 2nd, 2012 8:40 PM

    i love the first slide (the top photo especially) and the one in the empty pool (5) and number 15 and number 17…. this is really cute. the crowns are so crazy and definitely dandelion-esque!

    faux style.

    this is absolutely my favorite Rookie post so far. The “eye candy” posts just keep getting better and better and better. I’ve been going through a childhood nostalgia/ pastel vomit thing myself lately (which I wrote about on my blog: weaponheadblog.blogspot.com) and these pictures are so perfect, like doily arts and crafts and little kids in bubble gum colored skirts sitting two to a piano. VISUAL SATISFACTION. I’m curious what the inspiration was behind the cotton heads?

    The eyelashes, and the shoes, and the crowns, and the everything is just perfect.

  • pinnedtothepage February 2nd, 2012 10:14 PM

    i love this :) erica’s photo albums always have a really unique aesthetic

  • heyguys February 2nd, 2012 10:32 PM

    This album was adorable & pretty enough to make me register so I could comment on its adorableness & prettiness

  • taste test February 2nd, 2012 10:56 PM

    argh these pictures are so weird and cute and fabulous. especially 5, with that absolutely perfect reflection. I loff. I also really like 15 for some reason.

    were these taken in some mostly-abandoned complex? if it was, I love this set even more. I love photos of abandoned buildings. they’ve been a creepy obsession of mine for a really long time (boom! see what I did there?).

  • Sonja February 2nd, 2012 11:20 PM

    oh my dear lord. amazing. i’d like a largescale print of No.5 (dandelions reflected in the murky pool) so i can look at it for the rest of my life.

    • Ian February 3rd, 2012 11:24 AM

      I was thinking the exact same thing! Would love to contact the artist to arrange something. The whole series screams Texas! to me (confirmed by the little “Temple Betel” sign in picture 15) and I can’t help but get utterly nostalgic for my dreamy teenage years wondering through quiet heat of San Antonio.

      • Erica February 3rd, 2012 6:33 PM

        It is San Antonio!!!! These were taken at a Bible college my dad teaches at!

  • ielo_x3 February 2nd, 2012 11:27 PM

    the bejeweled shoes, the bejeweled shoes, the bejeweled shoes, the bejeweled shoes. ahh. i can’t. <3

  • Hedwig February 3rd, 2012 1:47 AM

    Where is that church?

  • Susann February 3rd, 2012 2:06 AM

    Absolutely beautiful! I love the third picture, just amazing!

    I may have a small temper tantrum if I do not get those shoes.

  • Tyknos93 February 3rd, 2012 1:37 PM

    Ohmigawsh these are so perfect! I can’t breathe.


  • OldBaggery February 3rd, 2012 3:12 PM

    I love this, especially the goosebumps and headpieces.

  • Claudia February 3rd, 2012 3:25 PM

    this is just too adorable for words

  • Kaleidoscopeeyes February 3rd, 2012 4:32 PM
