♥ Art Vandal Photography ♥

Photography inspired by the imaginings of a grown-up girl...

When I was a little girl, I lived to read. After my parents put me to bed I would grab my flashlight and hide under the covers and read until I couldn't keep my eyes open any longer. I had a vivid imagination and I would play by myself for hours on end with my dolls and horses and later on, my camera. Then, it was an old Polaroid Land Camera and stacks of instant film my mom would buy for me... Now I just use more sophisticated gear but I still try to capture images that have a vintage feel and remind me of home.

My cat is sitting on top of my GINORMOUS radio…today’s flea market treasure, which I will gut and turn it into cool new things…#mylife #myart #myadventures #myloves #artvandaldesigns #katfluharty

By the end of the day, we were worn out and Hannah asked if we could lay down in the soft grass to get a pic together. Mt. Dora and the grounds where the Antiques Mall and Flea Market is, is so hilly and beautiful and green with the old mossy oaks all over…it’s one of the most beautiful pieces of property-so unlike the rest of Florida. We love it! #myart #mylife #myloves #myadventures #steampunk #mtdoraflorida #fallfulloffestivals #octoberfun #katfluharty #artvandaldesigns

These two were funny and polite and about 6 1/2 feet tall each. Lol very sweet to the girls, as my BFF and I took our daughters who have also embraced our uniqueness. #mylife #myloves #mygirl #steampunk #mtdoraflorida #fallfulloffestivals #octoberfun #artvandaldesigns #katfluharty

This is something I have unknowingly embraced for a long time…the vintage clothing, the imaginative styles, the creativity. I have always love vintage and antiques and junking and I do assemblage art and I love the Jules Verne/DaVinci/Lovecraft stories with all their cool machines. I watched Fringe and Warehouse 13…what took me so long to make it to one of these gatherings? Lol #mylife #myloves #myadventures #steampunk #mtdoraflorida #cosplay
