This was actually an idea that my girlfriend came up with last night that I really liked. I recently moved to Michigan from living on the beach in Virginia Beach area, and I have boxes of beach decorations that I had in my apartment out there including various shells and starfish. I thought the starfish out of context would be rather interesting concept, as if he were on vacation.
This was shot right in my driveway with the starfish on the snow covered rear window of my brothers car. It worked out perfectly that the setting sun was falling right in between my neighbors pine trees giving the warm attractive bokeh lighting effect in the background.
In the end it turned out to be a beautiful mending of my two worlds. One part Beach Boy, other part Michigander.
