Year 2006 collection. “I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?” John Lennon

When I woke up that morning, on the 30th January, from my living room’s big window I looked outside to the garden and saw a beautiful mist hanging all over the place. I noticed that the overall trees were white bright transparent wrapped but it was not snow because it has not been snowing…

When I left to work, after my personal hygiene done and my breakfast taken, I noticed that that effect was everywhere. The day before was rather sunny and warm with a plus 7 degrees but the night was chilly and foggy. In the early hours of that morning the temperature started to decrease even further freezing the fog that got literally glued to anything it touched. The surrounding environment looked magically beautiful, like a fairy tale, the frozen fog kept its transparency which enhanced whatever color was underneath. I was almost arriving at the company’s main reception hesitating if I should go to work or I should walk and live that magical moment…

Just before I swiped my company card to open the gate I decided to go back. I can’t miss it, I said to myself.

In fact I would loose a great deal of beauty would I not take the decision to go back home to pick-up my camera. In the afternoon all the magical had disappeared as disappeared the fog. The temperature increased again and all melted like it was the end of the fairy tale mommy was reading; “and then the little boy left to live happily in the land of dreams”. Fin
