It's dancey dance time with rain and noah!!

so we had some free time on our hands the other day and decided to do a little shooting for ourselves. we got rain and noah in their love lamp rockband outfits and hit the streets to make invisible airwaves crackle with life.
c'mon! it's dancey dance time! i like to dance! go, go, go, rain! do the rain dance! i like to dance! go, go, go, noah! do the noah dance! go, go!
caution!
some of these colors might melt your face off. :)







candy necklace goodness




all the cool kids hang out by concrete pillars. it was my understanding that everyone had heard.







under the bridge downtown




and i must be an acrobat, to talk like this, and act like that.




if noah was mr a to z would that make rain the geek in the pink







I'm in the black, can't see or be seen. Baby, baby, baby...light my way



















X gon give it to ya







noah was rockin' the rex harrison hat










rain was enjoying a nice summer breeze in january.










walk on, walk on... stay safe tonight




for those of you that love the musical links, i couldn't end this post without a link to rain's jam. it's ok to sing along. you know the words.
