Lucas Allen Photography

The weather has been rubbish in most parts of America. Winter is making the northern Europeans a little mad too. I think the only ones who are truly happy at the moment are dancing on tables in Ibiza because most of us are freezing our cheeks off. And so with the cold icy streets that we fall on and the bitter to-the-bone chill that we feel… these serene visions of warmer days are for you. Thank you photographer Lucas Allen for the amazing visual inspiration that you’ve made available online via your stunning portfolio.

Do you think the Dalmatian is dreaming about Spring too?

About Lucas Allen: He began shooting professionally at the age of 21 and has been at it ever since and he’s now in his mid thirties. Australian born and raised, he currently lives in New York and has worked for a broad range of publications from Real Simple to Blueprint and Vogue in addition to various ad campaigns. His photographs have appeared in magazines worldwide… do your recognize any of these from your favorite glossies? I encourage you to view his work online, there are many images I’ve not shown here that you will most likely find inspirational.

And in regards to winter well friends, hang in there. I hear Spring begins next month, psst…pass it on…

    Oh, these images are gorgeous….gorgeous. They not only make me feel spring like but, they also inspire me for my own space. That bedroom is divine….

    The Dalmation is a show stopper too :)

    LOL! And here I am rubbing my hands in glee that summer will soon be over ‘down here’, and autumn – my favourite season – will begin. :)
    (I “sugared” you today on my blog – hope that’s okay!!)

    holly meet you in ibiza, stat. wonderful photography and your picture story put a smile on my face, as well. Dalmatians – I have never seen one sit still for more than a second. Not sure how L Allen captured that moment:)
    Thanks- for the eye candy, with a foot of snow out my window.

    Oh, did I enjoy these on this cold winter’s day. Gorgeous. I think the dalmatian is dreaming of that pink bowl on the table across the way – that someone will make her a collar in that very color.

    The dalmation is the sweetest!! Still stinking hot here in Oz. We’ve just been to the beach for the afternoon.
    If you feel like seeing some sunshine, fun and water – drop into my blog. The pics have now been posted!
    Hope the weather improves for you soon – and have a lovely weekend!

    At work today, the chocolate biscuits put out for morning tea in the (unairconditioned) common room had melted within quarter of an hour – kept their shape, but you just knew that they were impossible to pick up. It got to almost 40degC (Fahrenheit equivalent: too darn hot!). Here in Oz, where it’s summer, and in the sticky humidity of February, I can’t wait for autumn. Winter? please come soon.

    PS I mentioned a poster I found on your blog a few days ago, on my blog – inspiration is everywhere! Thank you.

    Beautiful photos. I love the table setting on the first pic. It’s so simple but stunning. I also love the third pic with the colourful accessories and the white wooden backdrop. Just lovely!
