Where time stopped…

“She knocked and waited, because when the door was opened from within, 
it had the potential to lead someplace quite different.” 
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Should today be the day she would finally get the courage to open the mysterious door? She had always wondered what was hidden behind it. She felt both anxious and excited. Should she play it safe and continue on her usual path, like every other day? 
or this time take a chance and follow her own heart? Against all odds and to her own surprise she decided to open it. Fear, excitement and curiosity rushing through her blood, she slowly pushed it ajar…

What she saw both put her mind at ease and a smile on her face.

On this side of the door, time had stopped. Looking around she felt as if she had stepped into a different dimension. The streets were deserted. The air was pure and so much cleaner than she was used to. The statue in the middle of the village seemed to have been waiting for her. She could not help but feel reassured.

Continuing down the village streets all alone she wondered, was she eventually going to meet someone? Anyone? 

…Having fun with the photographs I took in Monte Bre, a village I fell in love with this past July…


  1. This is so beautiful! My heart started to pound as "she slowly pushed the door ajar". This looks like a place I could definitely fall in love with! 🙂


  2. Tout est joli dans ce village, un visage bien connu de nos villages de montagne. Mais la sculpture me paraît un peu démesurée et trop anguleuse pour moi. Bonne journée!


  3. You're having fun with the photos. That's good! And you're also having fun with us by throwing in a little mystery. I put the, " What do you think she was about to do."


  4. I love the quote you began with. These beautiful photographs stand alone in their own right — but the way you have woven this story brings a new dimension and leaves us intrigued to know more!!


Talk to me, I am listening :-)
