Its' not only cool and playful. It's not only a new way to tell about a hot Californian summer. It's much more than that. When German photographer Simone Rosenbauer based in Sydney, Australia, made her series about popsicles, she  attended an artistic residency in Venice Beach. And she put it this way:  "It's a moment frozen by a camera - but long gone. In the edit, I intuitively selected an image, which captures a tension between past and future. The images talk about the cycle of life - everything is constantly moving and has a beginning and an end. We've been left with memories, and we don't know what will come next - but we know there will be an end." We told you, it's not only about ice creams...
