"Thales of Miletus (c. 624 - 546 B.C.), an early Pre-Socratic philosopher, believed that water was the primal source of all things—perhaps the sine qua non of the world. So what a better name for a combo related to the Hellenic maritime spirit and Greece, a country which is surrounded by three seas? When I think of Greek summers, the dominant color that comes to mind - from the bright sunny skies to the deep waters of the Pelagos - is blue and the enormous variety of its hues that differ in saturation and intensity.
In search for the right elements to convey this vibrant summer palette, I turned to the Erie GL lens for its clear turquoise character and to the Hackney film for its bluish tint with that particular extra hint of a glow, similar to the touch of a golden sun. Speaking of gold, the addition of the Apollo flash worked miracles in this case, bringing out the best of both elements. Get all set, it’s time to capture new summer memories!
