PHOTOGRAPHY BY A THREE-YEAR-OLD IN ITALY

As promised, here are a few of the photos taken by Gianluca. Most of these are from Pennadomo or the house. It was so funny when I was jumping in Pennadomo. I told him to count to three and take the picture so that I could jump on the count of three. A few times, he did it right. Then he started "one, two, three, four, five, six..." and I burst out laughing. Almost got it, Gianluca. God, he loved using the camera! He still has a lot to learn but as a three-year-old, I'd say this ain't too bad a start ;)

As you can tell, these are all landscape shots. He kind of gets how to operate the camera, he knows what button to push that will do the "click" and he knows where to look through, but that's about it. He loves hearing the click, again and again and again. He moves all around, pointing the camera at plants, and horses, and his toy truck, and mostly me. Parts of me really. I guess I'm too tall – for once haha! He also uses his mom's iphone to take pictures. I can't wait for him to be a bit older to see if his love of photography will grow! How exciting that would be.

There I am, trying to take the camera from him haha. "That's enough for today, Gianluca..."

WORN IN TORRICELLA PELIGNA

I was in Italy at the beginning of the month. It was relaxing, and all sorts of amazing. I took a carry-on suitcase with a few things to wear, all good for the hottest days of summer. And Abruzzo at the beginning of August indeed knows some of the hottest days of summer. We went to the beach in the mornings, spending hours in the water with ocean-lovin' Gianluca, and after a light lunch at home, we all took a few hours to rest while Gianluca had his nap.

This is one of the outfits I wore on a hot afternoon in Torricella Peligna. (I'm confused about these pictures – they are pixelated and a bit too blurry. Not sure what happened there...) I bought the tank top in Colombia. It wrinkles super easily but it's so light and comfortable that I don't give a s... I had to go way back in the Outfit archives to find where the necklace came from. I was shocked how far back I had to go seeing as I wear it all the time. It's so beautiful and minimal and light. I thought I featured it more often but I guess not. So definitely go check out Junam Jewelry's etsy page. I love all her necklaces! There are my favorite: one / two / three

AFTERNOONS IN PENNADOMO

Pennadomo 2 Pennadomo 1 Pennadomo 3

On a cloudy afternoon, we made our way to the little town of Pennadomo. I brought my camera, and Gianluca wanted nothing more than to be the photographer for the afternoon. I kept telling him we were going to take turns sharing the camera, which made him whine. I told him he couldn't have the camera if we was going to whine, which made him whine more. He will learn ;) In the next post, I'll show you the photos Gianluca took. He's a natural!

Look at that little face! Gianluca is super hard to photograph. He is constantly on the run (and always wanting to be the one taking the pictures). He is incredibly curious and makes comments about every detail he finds interesting, posing questions I often can't answer. There are so many things that are hard to explain to a three-year-old! In Pennadomo, he was super happy to photograph the dog in the window, as you can see in the next-to-last picture. I wish I had more pictures of the landscapes surrounding Pennadomo. Breathtaking.

San Pio, I saw that statue and had to take a picture for my mom!
