About Me

My photo
Hola! Hello! Bonjour! Szerbus! Ciao! My name is Catalina and I'm a freelance photogrher based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hola! Me llamo Catalina y son una fotografa en Charlotte, Carolina del Norte. Although a straight-A student in high school, I loathed and somehow managed to skip Physics in order to print in the dark room. Now, with the passing of each day, I am more and more passionate about photography and the moments I can capture through my lens - abstract or otherwise. Enjoy!

Greetings from Italy, where I am spending 10 days with mom (Susy), dad (Alberto) and his family. He is from the teeny town of Lovere, in the province of Bergamo in the northern part of Italy.

My uncle Andrea spent yesterday (Friday) picking us up from all parts of Italy. First, he picked me up from Linate airport, and then we were off to Como to wait for mom and dad's arrival via train from Switzerland, and after a 2hr drive, we finally made it to Lovere, to my aunt Adelinda's home.

Andrea and I had about 3 hours before my parent's arrival, so we walked around the Como lake. If you know anything about Como, perhaps it's that George Clooney has a home around those parts. Unfortunately, there was no celebrity sighting, but nonetheless, our walk around the lake was beautiful!

Here is an image shot from a bench facing lake Como

After 36 hours of no sleep and the large time-zone difference, it was finally time to go to bed (9pm - i could not stay awake any longer!) and around 17 hours later - at 2 this afternoon, I finally woke up feeling refreshed, awake and ready to hang out and take some photos and enjoy.

more photos tomorrow!





love the bench shot!


Adelinda and Alberto both look great!|



Alberto really looks good. Must be that air of Lovere.


Adelinda is adding her special extra virgin olive oil to her salad.
