Postcards from Italy

Posted on Feb 27, 2013 in Photography, Skiing, Sports | No Comments

The daily routine is the same. In the morning there is typically an info, then around noon a competition, in the evening some skijumping or a medal ceremony (not too many of those so far…).

One never sends postcards these days… at least I don’t. And still haunted by the Koci Hernandez piece I referred to earlier in this blog. So with some extrea time in my hands,  I play with the images… my version of old postcards…

Here’s one take from the week gone. Just images.KK-ValDiFiemmeXKK_8300_101Bronze in the dual sprint. Krista and Riikka.
