The Good Life

No one captures the good life better than Slim Aarons. 

I've always been drawn to his photos not only because the subjects are so 
intriguing, but also because of the style in which they are shot. There is 
something about how they are merely going on with their normal lives 
and fabulousness, not a care in the world. I was happy to learn just 
recently that he never used a stylist or makeup artist which makes 
his photography that much more appealing. Aarons once said while he 
was in the US Army, the only thing combat taught him was that the 
only beach worth landing on was "decorated with beautiful, seminude 
girls tanning in a tranquil sun." After looking at his photographs you 
know he really meant it.
