on my walk, a bit more about my village

on my walk, a bit more about my village

A quick post about what I see and like to record on my walk.

lately I’ve been walking around my village even more that in the past. On my birthday mu mum gifted me a camera and we’re inseparable. I haven’t had a proper camera in many years, until now all my pics were taken with an old iPhone. I’m still learning how to use it and I’m sharing with you some pics I took yesterday and this morning while exploring the village with new eyes. Do you ever feel like you see things for the first time even if you know a place very well? Lately this is happening to me so often. I discover new things and I appreciate old ones. This is how I decided to live when I’ve moved here and I’m happy I stood up to my decision even if I doubted myself so many times.

I hope you’ll enjoy these pics, I’m sure more will come soon!

I like all the different textures and colours in the pic below, I took it when I was walking along the harbour where people repair their wooden boats.

the main wooden door you see in the pic is going to be my new home entrance in a couple of weeks, I’ll live on the second floor. On the ground floor there is a small home where the fisherman sells his daily catch. You can see the building in this post I wrote a while back.

this is where the boats come an go, you can take them to visit the main villages on Lake Como. It’s a beautiful experience, I’ve done a few trips already and I’ll do more for sure soon. There is something special in seeing villages from the water, as you can see in this older post (last photo), when I was on a boat leaving Varenna village.

I spotted a duck with her duckling, in this period you can see lots of them around. I love the muted colours in this pic.

    • thanks Katrina! to be honest I’m not prepared for my move at all, still need to pack everything. I’m super excited, the new home is in a lovely quiet location, on the waterfront. And I’ll have a big balcony for plants and food!

  3. I hope you are looking forward to your move away from the main road – your new place looks lovely and I love that the fish is sold downstairs! I think photography is particularly useful in allowing us to see things in a new way…

    • I can’t wait to move to my new home, Joanna. It’s such a quiet place and has a lovely view. I agree with you about photography, everything is new through the lenses

  6. I love your eye, those photos are dreamy! It’s so nice to see Italy in the winter, being just for the locals and not all the tourists.
