photographs from my hometown.

I spent the rest of my week in Italy at my parents' house: we had some wonderful family time together with my twin sister too. my hometown is a little village called Piussogno that you will not easily find on a map: it is located between the Alps in a valley known as Valtellina. before moving abroad I had never thought mountains were beautiful - since I was used to look at them every day: now I find them special and interesting too.
photographs from my hometown:

Diana Mini - kodak portra 800.
I had found myself to be so fascinated by the pointed shapes of the mountain tops: the mist and the snow were making them look even more appealing. one fine day my dad took me around some old unknown roads so that I could take the photographs that you have just seen here: we had such a lovely time together and he knows Valtellina so well that he was the perfect guide for me. ♥♥♥ grazie papà!
alla mia famiglia: grazie mille per questo meraviglioso Natale insieme!

      I indeed had a lovely Christmas time with my family, yet my hometown is probably too quiet for me to fully appreciate it - I remember feeling very bored with it when I was a teenager. now that I live abroad I miss it sometimes though! ;-)
