lesley sico photography: shades of pastel green

i’ve hit a bit of a personal limit when it comes to vintage, holga-style photography and the way it feels like it dominates the photography section on etsy. but every now and then a collection of photos sneaks through that makes me smile- and makes me want to find a new frame for one of these romantic photos. yesterday photographer lesley sico sent over her beautiful photographs inspired by her travels to paris. i loved the way she plays with a soft mint/pastel green color palette and couldn’t get enough of these photos paired together. especially the top image. maybe if i close my eyes and click my heels these shots can transport me back to montmarte where i can sit and enjoy a delicious macaron. click here to check out lesley’s etsy shop and buy online. thanks, lesley!


I, too, love this sea green – my childhood bedroom was this color! And who doesn’t love Laduree macaroons?! Beautiful shots, though…esp the home with shutters.

Beautiful beautiful pastels! reminds me of Dominican Republic. My aunt’s house is actually this very shade of pastel green and my mom opted for a pastel yellow.

Gorgeous images…that is one of my favorite shades of green as well! Reminds me of jadite. :)


I adore this color. It has truly transported me to dreams of Paris. (I’ve been searching for delicate dresses in this color and have had no luck. sigh)


la duree! i just finished studying abroad in paris and macarons from la duree really are the most delicious ones you’ll ever eat! i’m missing it!


Not that these aren’t lovely, but I am also WAY over people plugging their digital images into frame templates to make them look like Holga photographs (as these are). There is a valuable and poignant art form to making a photograph inside a camera that I think is lost when a quick fix photoshop glaze is added…. but that’s just me.


I have that Ginger Mint Julep poster size on the wall in my house! It’s my favorite wall in New Orleans!

I took a picture and had it blown up poster sized and then framed it.


I recognize a few of those photos as areas of New Orleans. Great city for photography!


@Ecce: i think the frame templates that you’re talking about (like the ginger mint julep one) is actually ttv or ‘through the viewfinder’ and is a technique all its own. using a digital camera, one shoots through the lens of another camera. read more here: http://www.russmorris.com/ttv/


grace, thank you so much for featuring my photography! i am so honored :)



These are pretty! I recently went to Sucre’ on Magazine Street in Nola! I LOVED IT! They have the best gelato, hands down! :) I too have photographed the Mint Julep Wall from Nola. Mine looks completely different at night! more red and green. So fun!


julia, the macarons in the last photo are from sucre!! sooooo delish.

My daughter recently made a structure out of blocks that that she said turns everything into minty green, The Minty Green Machine!
