Love is in the air…everywhere! All these photos were taken on the lakes of Regio Insubria, a land between Switzerland (Region of Ticino) and the North of Lombardia. This region is full of wonderful lakes, which are also wonderful places to celebrate love and friendships!
Love is written under your shoes (?!)
or… is written on the big red umbrellas with the symbol of a heart…
or… you can feel the love sitting “barefoot on the…plastic” (Do you remember the film “Barefoot in the Park?”… well, this is the artificial grass placed this summer in Como, to cover some ugly construction works along the banks)
or is written on the “Monumento alla resistenza” at the main park of Como, in the “Giardini a Lago”. Bad idea, because this monument is dedicated to the men and women who fought Nazism and Fascism.
or you can find some love declaration on a pole…
or written on a wall (another bad idea…)
No boy, no… because love is beautiful, but it is such an intimate thing that you must never use a wall or a monument to write your feelings because love is forever…
both for the young and not-too-young couples…
and because it is beautiful to make love and not war (this photo was taken outside the football stadium; inside, sometimes there were incidents between opposite team supporters…). So: Love!…and love the sport as a wonderful game!
Love is near the waters of Como Lake! Enjoy the freedom to stay with a friend. In the last photo, one girl seems to enjoy this moment of friendship; she is sitting with her hands closed, it seems that she would capture this moment forever. Her friend is barefoot to enjoy in complete freedom this free time, this moment to stay together! Love is beautiful and friendship is great too!
So:love, and always smile at your friends!
Note: all these photos were taken in Como, except the second one (taken in Moltrasio), and the first one (Locarno). The cameras used are a Lomo LC-A, a Kodak Retinette 1b, a Lubitel 166U for the double exposure photo and a Praktica MTL 5.
