a dream to fly

...”the drone of flying engines
is a song so wild and blue,
it scrambles time and seasons if it gets thru to you
then your life became a travelogue
of picture-post-card-charms
Amelia, it was just a false alarm...”
 Joni Mitchell's ”Amelia”

It's happened once again, when I stumble upon
a photo shoot of the talented Russian duo made
by photographer Andrey Yakovlev and art director
Lili Aleeva I suddenly go nuts.

They have a real knack for fashion shooting
and at all times each and every picture bears
a glamour aura with perfectly styled
outfits and a remarkable use of light making
it polished and highly sophisiticated: 
 it's time to fly again.

By the way, the aviator-inspired look of Russian 
model Anastasija Ivanova reminds me the legendary
figure of American aviation pioneer and author
Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo 
across the Atlantic Ocean.

Simply called ”Arrival” the new photo shoot
makes use of reflective curved surfaces showing
fancy spring/summer garments and kicky accessories
in the characteristic style of the Russian twosome
which every time goes refined.

You can see all pics here, have a fly high weekend!
