I'm sure you all read The Selvedge Yard and bathe in the vintage images, but these by Michael Cooper are keepers. Google tells me that he's the photographer on whom Blowup was based. The photographs are of Gram Parsons, Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg at Joshua Tree National Monument in 1969. It also tells me that Gram & Keith became enamored with Joshua Tree. The two would disappear in the desert for days, searching for UFOs while under the influence of psilocybin or LSD. Very lifestyle. As are the Southwestern blankets. Definitely the mood for now.
