Pinup Pt. 3 - Coca-Cola Cooldown

Oh my god, it's finally summer.
And holy jeez, it's so summer.  Already got some pretty high temperatures in June, although you won't ever find me complaining.  I know a lot of people can't stand the heat but I've been waiting all winter/spring to be able to wear shorts and sandals instead of pants and parkas.

But it doesn't mean I don't like to enjoy a cold beverage during those 30+ degrees days.
And honestly, while it isn't my first choice of drinks (I prefer lemonade or iced tea), I've always admired Coca-Cola's iconic brand and style.  Their advertisements, especially the vintage ones, have such strong brand recognition that I really wanted to try my hand at emulating the same feel.  For some of the photos, I tried to caption it with an appropriate slogan from Coke's long history of advertising.

And with Canada Day around the corner, it felt kind of patriotic shooting the white and red :)
So cheers to Coke and their impressive 130 years …
