Picture This: Fun Moments of Freedom!

2

In this article I want to show you some my favorite activities that allow me to enjoy a great sense of freedom. Sports activities, relaxing, free time, moments with my friends.

Freedom means taking off socks and shoes, and to take a nice sunbath in good company in a nice park, a few hundreds meters from my home!

Alternatively, it means spending the weekend in a characteristic small village by the sea (in this case, Noli), to relax in a nice beach that is not too crowded!

I love these beaches where I can build my own castles!

I love sports activities and to have fun watching a beach volleyball match!

In this season, I also love to to practice yoga outdoors!

Freedom is the joy of engaging in a pillow fight with my friends…

…or wearing a pair of roller skates in the summer time….

…or “sensing” the motion of slipping on the ice in the winter!

I love to fly in the sky with a tethered hot air balloon. In this case, during the occasion of the anniversary of the local Aero Club of my city, Como!

Of course, it’s better to fly barefoot in the sky, in complete freedom!

I like to practice bungee jumping or similar games. This amazing carousel is known as “Ejection Seat” or “Sling shot” and has an acceleration of 5g!

I love the thrilling carousels, like this one called X-danger! I love to ride it barefoot, to fly in the sky like a bird!

This is the time to dip into fresh and clean waters…

…Or to swim in a pool or in a nice Swiss alpine lake!

In spring or autumn, it’s a pleasure to ride a canoe in the calm waters of a small lake. This is the Lake of Pusiano, few kilometers from my city.

Another pleasure is to eat chocolate in the winter season…

Credits: sirio174

…and to cycle in the summer to lose weight!

Credits: sirio174

The last pleasure that I want to show you is my preferred summer hobby: bicycle touring! Each year, I do a car-free vacation in the nature!

What about you, which of your photos represent freedom for you?

    My Day in Analogue: Lazy Summer Days at Home

    Every summer, my soul screams for a lazy, hot day back at my parents' home, for some good food, relaxation, and catching up with childhood friends. This year is no different, so I went back down to my small hometown in the very northeast of Belgium to enjoy a perfect laid back day doing nothing and everything. And of course, I brought my analogue cameras along to eternalize all of these small but grand moments in life.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ducks (A Tribute to Henri Cartier-Bresson)

    This article is dedicated to arguably one of the most famous street photographers in the world, Henri Cartier-Bresson (1908-2004). On this occasion, I felt obliged to write a tribute to this great artist whom I consider the "Mozart of Photography." His photos are inimitable, and to try to reproduce his innate sense of composition, harmony, and choice of the right moment is but an illusion. So I chose an unusual way to pay tribute, the only way possible for me. Take a look!

    This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    This article is a tribute to an important street photographer, Edouard Boubat. His pictures are characterized by great poetic touch, strong social sensitivity, and utmost respect for people and places. Inspired by a book which contains Boubat's photos taken in the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, I pay homage by showcasing some of my photos taken within the same geographic area.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Object of My Affection: Subbuteo

    In my early adolescence, I liked to play table football. For my 12th birthday, my parents gifted me with a wonderful Subbuteo table soccer game set that I had wished for many months! This was my favorite toy until I discovered other interesting hobbies, like ham radio and electronics. So after some years, I gave away this game to other kids. I always remembered this game with pleasure and a hint of nostalgia.
