Picture This: Freedom: What is Freedom for Me? Simply Travelling.

2

Everyone who knows me would be able to answer the question "What is freedom for Aurélie?" Everyone (including me) would answer with no second thoughts: travelling!

Yes, it’s that simple.

For me, the best way to feel free is to travel. I don’t even need to go far. Just the feeling that I’m seeing something for the first time is enough to make me feel free.

Sometimes, when I’m in France, I love just to take my dog out and go to new places in my city. It’s a small city but I realized that I actually don’t even know half of it.

My sister and my dog.

Being in a plane means the start of a very new trip, meeting new people, seeing new places, trying out new food, enjoying a new adventure.

I love nature (and I only realized that a few months ago). I love walking in the forest, going to the top of a pyramid, a mountain, a volcano, even if I’m really NOT sporty at all! I feel free when I’m on the top and I just stay there to admire the view. Our planet is simply amazing and beautiful!

Sunsets are also one of my favorite things in the world.

For me, travelling is the best way to be free; you’re free to go wherever you want, to talk to whoever you want, and to try different things that you wouldn’t do normally.

Travelling is like living a different life for a few days or weeks, and this is the best feeling ever.

It’s freedom.

    Estonian Intersections of Sight and Sound

    Would you rather lose your vision or your hearing? As photographers, we might choose the latter without a second thought, especially while viewing the festival photos that photographer Mart Vares captured with the New Petzval 85 Lens. Still, who doesn’t love the pleasant mechanical shutter sound of an old SLR that makes us commit to analog photography? While following the Nordic delegation at this years Waves Central Europe, we caught up with the Estonian band, Würffel, whose songs leave us feeling equally delighted.

    Coloring Outside the Lines with LomoAmigo Tim Kerr

    We recently had the great opportunity to interview our latest LomoAmigo, Tim Kerr. While his repertoire stretches back to the late 1970's and includes that of musician, artist, painter, photographer, skater and many other things, he just prefers Tim! We gave him a La Sardina DIY, which he not only added his own style to, but shot some excellent photos with as well. Rife with candid and thoughtful answers, we expect everyone will glean a nugget of wisdom and leave with a smile.

    5 Noteworthy Architectural Details

    A building is a story of collective effort. The people who dreamed it up and polished every surface are anonymous to many, but their work announces a unique identity. For tourists, architecture is a marker of place, like souvenirs with flags and national costumes. For the camera-lugging traveler, a strong visual statement is what matters most.

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!
