We used to pass this abandoned looking villa
on the shore of Lake Como
nearly every day.
I would gasp every time,
as it seemed to be both abundant
in glorious beauty of the past
and shrouded in a veil of mystery.
It's places like these
that whisper a million tales
and would of course be the most perfect
locations for a fashion shoot,
in this glowing vein -
A little dusting of magic
on a rather ordinary autumn day.
