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.

"The cold, crisp taste of Coke" - 1958
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 of history (1886-2016!) and happy Canada Day weekend to my fellow Canadians!
