The story behind the image

Here’s a fun shot from the archive: a sleeping cat on top of an old wooden barrel. I discovered this beautiful image when we visited a so-called ‘Agriturismo’ near Pistoia in Italy. An Agriturismo is a usually an active farm on the countryside that also caters to tourists who are looking for utmost tranquility. Just like this cat did.
