Spring to Mind

Signs of Spring

'The front door to springtime is a photographer’s best friend.'

In addition to tulips and crocuses, one of the surest signs that spring has come is that less clothes are worn, and more skin is beautifully on display. With the 20th being the calendar's official start of the season, I thought it was time to pay the season it's due. It doesn't of course have to be spring for Bond, one FH's most popular subjects, to peel off his undies, but the start of the seasons certainly seems to makes it a more joyous event!

One of the things I, and exposed skin, love so much about the start of spring is the beautiful way the sun and air work together.  The combination of cool, crisp air  hitting the body, at the same time as the spring heat of the sun, is a sensuously invigorating sensation.  The feeling wakes up both skin and soul after a long dark winter.  In celebration of the new season, and the years bluest of sky's,  I went back into the archives to find some of my favorite images to illustrate the point, and the feeling.
