.PERSONAL. In my neighbourhood


Yesterday we arrived at home after a 7-days trip. It was quite improvised and maybe that's why it was such a special and spontaneous journey. We love the people that we visited and also the cities where they live. We had a lot of fun, but I must honestly say that I am really happy to be at home again. So today it just feel perfect to share this pictures of my neighborhood with you. I'm so glad to live here in this little and cute city.

I never imagined that I will end up here, feeling so much at home (in fact, I didn't know it existed). This place has a quality that is very important to me: it inspires me every single day (which, by the way, it is a really important fact now that I am working in some set design for some little theatre company, here in Halle). The streets around my house remind me to the atmosphere of some disney movies like One Hundred and One Dalmatians or The Aristocats. It also inspires me for vampire or witch-stories, because it is full of mysterious corners, hidden gardens and abandoned mansions. All of this, combined with beautiful parks and a huge river that crosses the city and introduces nature into the urban area. Halle has a beautiful randomness of elements that make you feel like if the city was designed by some god instead of being just a consequence of reality and history. But, you know? I cannot describe it as magical as it is. I hope that this pictures of the surroundings helps you to get the feeling.

And the beautiful river at sunset time.

  2. Por fin. Cuánto he esperado este relato y estas fotos. Y no me ha defraudado; lugar precioso, maravillosamente "encantador". Y tú qué bien captas su magia. El texto hace honor al sitio y las fotos no defraudan a las palabras. Opino como Lu, me quedaría horas mirando; invita a la ensoñación. Y tú, ¡qué sortuda eres!; por vivir en ese sitio, por escribir tan bien y por estar envuelta en la ambientación de ese proyecto teatral.

  3. The way you describe your home neighbourhood in words is as intriguing and enticing as the images in your photos.
    It looks like the kind of place that draws you in and then begins to reveal its secrets.

  4. Wow, vives en un sitio precioso, me encanta la forma en que los edificios y la vegetación se mezclan, es casi una demostración de que otro tipo de ciudad es posible.
    ¡Qué envidia!

  5. También me gustan las fotos, muy inspiradoras, me traen recuerdos de Copenhague, que tiempos ... Oye viendo la ultima foto de las sillas mirando al río me ha recordado cuadro que pinté algún tiempo atrás ... lo voy a colgar aunque no es tan chulo como tú foto.
