an afternoon at home.

Our friend bob stopped by this afternoon for a coffee.  Camera in hand, he roamed around and grabbed some scouting shots for an upcoming shoot.  I love his eye. Fast. Easy. Honestly lit.

Charlie’s lowrider (thanks, wills!) and our $alvation army couch Long live thrift store furniture !!  (where most of our stuff if sourced from) Check out bob’s amazingness: coscarelliphotography.com
