Rustic Dreams






























Näissä kuvissa on kysymys enemmän tunnelmasta kuin valokuvista itsestään. Kuvat ovat Italiasta mutta ne voisi yhtä hyvin olla Ranskasta tai Espanjasta. Tälläinen rustiikki vaan vetoaa minuun huomattavasti enemmän kuin ultramodernit pläjäykset tai 70- luvun betonirakentaminen. Tälläiset maisemat ovat unelmissani kun haaveilen pienestä asunnosta etelä-Euroopassa. Kysymys ei ole myöskään siitä ettenkö pitäisi suomalaisesta kansallismaisemasta, rakastan maalaisidylliä mutta en haaveile siitä koska se on ympärilläni ja saavutettavissa. Ihana eteläeurooppalainen pikkukoti mukavassa pienessä kylässä jossa kaikki huutelevat ciao hyväntuulisena eikä minulla ole mitään huolta huomisesta on epärealistinen haavekuva joka tuskin toteutuu koskaan mutta sen avulla jaksaa ja voi vaipua kolmanteen ulottuvuuteen pois täältä jokapäiväisestä elämästä. Eteläeurooppalaisessa söpöyskodissa ei makseta laskuja, siivota, ei  hoideta byrokratiaa eikä kasveissa ole kirvoja:)

In these pictures the question is more about atmosphere than pictures itself. They are from Italy but they could be from France or Spain. This kind of rustic ambiance just appeals to me as I'm dreaming on South European apartment. Question is not that I would not love Finnish countryside atmosphere, I do but I can have it, so why dream about that! If I don't win in a lottery I keep dreaming on South European home forever and everything there is perfect, you know! In your dreams there is no worries about money, weather, you never have to vacuum or wash your windows or anything. Life is just a pink happy bubble with cheerful people who say ciao:)

  3. Parhaat haaveet ovat eksoottisia ja lähes saavuttamattomia. Mutta eihän sitä koskaan tiedä! :)

  11. Great images - I love the subject matter, design, and creative use of limited color!!! My fav is the last one! Fun post. Some dreams are better than reality would actually be, while others are the type to build toward. Either way dreams keep hope alive:)

  20. You must have dreams Henrietta. I love this and have had the same dreams too.
    My dream came true...nearly ;)
    The dream of an old Italian flat became a very simple little house in a small village in the south of Portugal...and my dreams have changed a bit. Now I wish I could stay here for months...

  34. You are so right Henrietta, this could easily be my hometown, Girona (Catalonia, Spain).
    We are in Helsinki now and I'm enjoying my first few days in Finland.

    ReplyDelete
  35. We don't know exactly what we are going to do in Helsinki tomorrow. We just arrived at the city this afternoon, and walked around the city center. So, I guess, tomorrow we are going to visit the main important sights.
    We went to Porvoo today and we loved it. A really charming town.

    And yes, everything is fine! Thanks for offering your help.

  36. Lumoavia unelmia... unelmakodissa ei todellakaan tarvitse huolehtia arkisista hommista... pyykit viikkautuvat itsekskeen kauniiksi kuvauksellisiksi pinoiksi, kukat kukkivat aina täydellisesti, ikkunat ovat ikuisesti kirkkaita...
