I just love the atmosphere of this picture- the beautiful nature, its mystery and most importantly – this amazing old lady. It was very difficult to meet her, as she didn’t go out much, but I had enough time to wait for the right moment. It is very likely that this house has been her home for the most of her life and the village has been her world. The contrast with so many of the people from my generation including myself- living abroad and not sure anymore where exactly our physical home is, is so big. But independently of the type of person we are- a globetrotter or someone who has never left their village, there is a home within ourselves and it takes us just a minute to get there. For me the picture also shows this mysterious place out of this world where we find our safe haven and feel at peace where our true home is.
