  • Speaking Bohemian is our equally cultured and gritty travel photography blog that documents life in dreamworld of art and adventure!

In the heart of the jungle (at our Orange County residential studio compound) we pay homage to the 1950’s horror film The Creature from the Black Lagoon.   Wearing a mix of hard black leathers and antique french lace we photograph the amphibious lagoon creature that frequents our pools, model Amber Flowers. I do admit that Amber is much more representative of Kay (the gorgeous synchronized swimmer bombshell) and I am more like Gill Man (scaly & mesmerized by pure beauty), but for this story, Ambers seductive allure represents the mysterious lagoon creature that many have come to believe to be an anomaly.

Above Amber wears wet sexy ass black Rock & Republic shredded denim with a custom made wrap around bikini top that can give cleavage to the tiniest of titties (my fave). She also wears a handmade vintage belt with fringe and scalloped edges that looks awesome against her bare belly. Her scarf is macrame which was died black for the shoot.

Below Amber wears a thrifted vintage 80s high-waisted Wilsons Leather skirt that was chopped into a mini.  Around her neck she wears remants of antique french lace.  The belt is from my large stash of vintage belts, its an extra wide Argentinian gem made from leather, horse hair and adorned with genuine antique coins.

As you can see Buddha is a huntress and thinks she is a cat. She has just snuck up on Amber to pose for our jungle shoot. I think she is a good sub for a jaguar prop.

For the next looks we used a vintage lace kerchief as a sexy wrap around and a hard-core spiked collar that I saved from my punk days. Oi!!

The “Emerald Triangle”, the triad of Trinity, Humboldt and Mendocino Counties in Northern California. This is the home of BigFoot herself and secluded StarWars filming locales.  The forests are a hyper-saturated green with carpets of lacy young ferns and cushy vibrant moss clinging to rocks and dripping from the branches of giant ancient Redwoods that extend over to the rocky coastal cliffs. Drive further inland and there are endless rows of “emerald” colored grapevines undulating over hillsides, weaving striking symmetrical patterns like something straight out of M.C Escher’s mind. With all of its green-osity, no wonder its nicknamed “The Emerald Triangle” right?? – Wrong!  Because unless you’re following Prop 215 and have a lifetime subscription (or should I say ‘prescription’) to High Times, you will likely think that “The Emerald Triangle” is the latest OZ iteration or someplace west of Bermuda. The average tourist has no idea of its nickname which stems from being one of the worlds most abundant marijuana growing regions.

Check out our vibrant fashion  story of California’s ultimate laid back hippie utopia on our 3 day road trippin’ camping adventure to Glass Beach, Avenue of the Giants and the Russian River.

On our studio property in Orange County,where the the bougainvillea bloom a vibrant hot-pink all year long, we photographed model Amber Flowers in our vintage clothing collection. Amber wore a vintage 60s bubble gum pink lace blouse with delicate pleated shoulders. The sleeves taper down to a narrow wrist finished with scalloped lace making it super feminine! The waist is also scalloped at the bottom and features a bakelite & rhinestone centerpiece that cinches up the fabric for a little peek-a-boo of the belly. To add a stunning contrast we paired the look with an antique Whiting and Davis chain mail mesh bib necklace and an oversized vintage brass Indian belt.sexy model, girly model, pretty brunette, brown hair, blue eyes, blue eyed brunette, pale skin, white skin, waif, model, pink, gold, gold lame, chain mail, vintage, pink, pink lace,heather van gale, photographer, fashion photographer, fashion blogger,PINfashion-photographer-vintagepretty girl, brunette, fashion, model, san diego, orange county, waif, fashion photographer, heaher van gale, speaking bohemian,fashion photographer orange countytopless,topless model, fashion, waif,gold lame, artistic fashion, bougainvillea,hit fashion,pretty girl, sexy model, brunette model,california,los los angeles, orange county model, heather van gaale,speaking bohemian,fine-art-fashion-topless
