Mood board overview from top to bottom: The mood board spans down vertically with a height of about 500 pixels. At its top right corner is a black and white photo of a young girl skateboarding. She is skating along a ramp in a skate park. To the right of this photo is two overlapping images. The first image is a photo of three white knit sweaters. The image is very bright with no color. The image behind this one is a cut off photo of a grey linen fabric. Below these images and directly below the black and white photo of the young girl is thin black scripted text that reads, 'love love love'. Below this scripted text is a photo of a beach shack on stilts. This wooden shack is the only building in frame and sits in front of the ocean on a desolate beach. Next to this photo is a photograph of the ocean. It is taken with the line of the horizon a little less than halfway from the bottom of the photo. The ocean is peaceful with two waves rolling in towards the shore. In the light blue sky of this photo is another set of scripted text. It reads, 'sea salt sand' and is in the upper right. In the bottom row of this mood board is three more photos. The bottom left photo is the behind view of a young girl walking on the beach. She wears a navy blue and white dotted swimsuit. Her blonde wavy hair covers most of her back and she wears a straw hat. She is walking on the beach along a wooden ramp. The photo spans from a little below her waist to the top of her hat. Behind the girl, the viewer is able to see the ocean and surrounding dunes. Next to this girl is a photograph of the 
        shadow of a palm leaf. This shadow is on a white fence. The shadow spans from the top right of the photograph to the middle left. This photo is placed directly under and to the left of the final image. The last image is in the bottom right of the mood board. This image shows the arms of someone holding up a straw hat. They are holding it with only their hands and a bit of their arms in view. The straw hat is a simple yellow / light brown hat. Their hands and the hat are in the bottom right of the photo. To the the left and in the upper corner of the photo are two green palm leaves. The leaves border the upper edges of the photo and are slightly out of frame.
