My Little Places
Wherever I go, I feel like I belong
     We don't choose when or where we are born, we're simply brought into this world without any idea of what we'll find out here. As we grow up we learn more about the present, about what surrounds us, and we experience this natural love for our country, our city, our little place. The idea for this project was to show my appreciation for these places that I love, which go from landscapes, villages, cities, landmarks, or simply locations where I feel nostalgic for some personal reason (for example, either the house of my grandparents or just some place I had a memorable time when I was younger). I figured the best way to do this was to make it look like a little tiny place, showing how softly and kindly I keep them in my mind and heart. By turning them into these little places, I can easily play and dream with it whenever I want, reliving the reason why I love them so much in first place.

     I was born in Lisbon, Portugal, but somehow I feel like I belong individually to each of these little places.

     Any of these particular places have a little story about them, a story so big for each of them that I'm afraid it wouldn't fit in it.

     Hope you enjoyed it.
