For years I've been seeing photos of retro inspired girls in laundromats. I've always wondered why this has been such a popular location idea, now I'm thinking that maybe they just needed an indoor spot to shoot. It feels like spring is right around the corner, but not quite yet. I can brave taking a couple photos outside during the winter, but if I want to get a full blog posts worth of shots, I'd prefer to be indoors, especially if I'm taking them by myself with my tripod, because I usually have to tinker around with things a bit. I decided to shoot this Lindy Bop top inside of this East Village laundromat I've walked by dozens of times because the colors matched my top pretty perfectly. East Village is my favorite area of the city to hang out in, so I shot this outfit on Sunday in between grabbing brunch and checking out my usual vintage stores. Sometimes I can get pretty obsessive with finding the perfect location or getting the perfect shot, but I find the less I plan ahead, the happier I am with photos. Sometimes a seemingly cliched or mundane location, such as this one, works out just fine.
