Photos from Allyssa’s trip upstate.
My parents live in upstate NY and these photos really capture living there, except it makes it seem much nicer and cooler than anything I’ve ever experienced while living there, of course.
rlly love the laying down guitar one!!!
Gorgeous photoset. Also upstate NY vibez = very under appreciated.

Wonderful after-christmas-still-cosy-but-fresh-snow-upsate-guitars-amazingness-ugh vibes <3
Beautiful and cosy :) I would love to know the camera used for this
Love no.6 and no.11. Makes me wish that we’d had snow where I live!
These are so beautiful! I love them.
so wintry & wonderful
I love these pictures, they makes me nostalgic for when I used to live in Rochester, NY. I’m currently living in Hawai’i where the weather doesn’t drop below 70, even in this current ice age that’s taking over the USA.
Pictures 1 and 11 are my favorite. It makes me want to cuddle up and start a fire.
to allyssa from alissa : amazing pictures !! they are so very perfect ! love it (:
I loved all of these wow.
