Face value, this photo of “peaceful” is cliche. This may not be the most creative photography, but it holds a very special place in my heart. For me, photos are more about the memory than the actual likeness.
This photo was taken during my euro trip in June 2012. I was staying in a villa in the heart of Tuscany. The weather was sunny and hot (in the high 90′s). The hostel’s infinity pool was located down a hill through rows and rows of olives trees. The cooling water from the pool was absolutely heavenly. The stress of the big city (Florence) and the mishaps of traveling just melted away as my head dunked in and out of crystal clear waters. As I type this, I wonder what the pool is doing right now? Maybe hosting a pool party filled with backpackers from all over the world. Or maybe just sitting there unused and waiting for Summer to roll back around.
