Though we are still in Winter down here in Florida one of the major advantages we hold over a majority of the remainder of the country is being able to enjoy sunny warm weather even in January. So taking advantage of the surroundings I assembled my fantastic team again to put together a fun shoot down in St Petersburg.
Our model, Mary has a particular draw to the downtown area and so when we were arranging ideas it was a fairly easy decision to utilize the space for the shoot. We drew upon three different spots on the strip for the shoot that afternoon. I have not been to the old pier since it was officially closed last year but was glad to find out the exterior of the pier was still accessible. We definitely did a lot of walking from one location to another that day but the weather was nice and it felt good to reconnect with old friends during the day.
Starting at the boat docks at the tip of the pier we began our shoot and slowly meandered down the road towards the end of the pier. For the third location we found a small pizza shop just off Central a bit down the main strip but still very accommodating and a great deal for two slices and a drink!
The title again for this shoot comes from another famous song taken from Morrissey and his original band The Smiths. I am playing around with different musical song titles in 2015 so I am sure you will see this theme reoccurring again.
