Gary Malin

It seems like out of no where, my blog feed & Pinterest pages have been overrun with Gary Malin photos, and I must say I’m obsessed. His latest series “Up & Away” features balloons in an “unnatural environment” – like on the beach, in the wild, or outside of famous landmarks. If I had all the money in the world, I would totally decorate my entire house with these photos!!






When I saw Emily from Cupcakes & Cashmere post her living room makeover, my eye was drawn to her Gary Malin photo mounted above her couch. It looked familiar, but I couldn’t place the location. Know where this is??





Yep, North Ave Beach in Chicago!! I legitimately lived less than 1 mile from this beach, and cannot think of a better photo that captures the beauty of a Chicago summer. I am currently saving my pennies to get this framed for our living room…which may take me a few years of saving…

Malin’s “A la Plage” series is my absolute favorite! I love the beach and can only dream to have his photos for every beach Kyle & I explore. Having recently returned from Copacabana in Rio de Jainero, Brazil, my second purchase (aside from the North Ave. Beach photo) would be one of his photos from Rio.



I can’t believe summer is ending, and my future beach vacations will be limited to 2015 – maybe St. Tropez! Who’s your favorite photographer?? What beach vacation are you dreaming of going on??
