Picture This: My Moments of Happiness

2

What are the things that make me happy? Simple: they are the moments of my life shared with other people, whether with a girl, my friends, and also even my students! Take a look!

In my previous article, I explained to you a series of my fun moments of freedom; they are in particular sports activities, life at the beach, adrenaline carousels, flying through the sky in a balloon or parachute! Now, my moments of greatest happiness are the ones where I can share something with other people!

I love to walk with my friends in the street of my city Como:

Sometimes, all together we buy good local food and eat it in a picnic

In this hot summertime, it is a pleasure to taste an ice cream in company of my friends!

I love to share hugs. Here a photo of a free hugs manifestation in my city! In this article I chose the scenes of life that I like, and that I’m glad to see around me.

Chess is my favorite table game from my adolescence: it is always a pleasure to find someone to play a match!

I love to work with my students (I’m a teacher), so it’s always a pleasure to share a smile with a student! Here is a photo taken during Creativity Day, when all the secondary schools of my city organize some creative shows in the pedestrian zone of my city.

It’s a pleasure to build some things with my students: here you can see the building of a “Mini Sling Shot,” a faithful 1:33 model of an adrenaline carousel. Here you can see the works made with my students, and the carousel also!

I love to take off my shoes (and socks too!), to stay barefoot in a sunny day, and take a sunbath in good company!

I love to play some simple games with other people. This photo was taken at the Medieval Festival of my city:

I like to participate to the street parade of my city:

And, to try with other people, making some huge soap bubbles:

Another occasion to meet new friends and to know people is to learn a new sport discipline in a public demonstration:

Finally, there is one last thing that I like, but I cannot do: playing with a dog (I’m allergic to animal fur):

After reading this article, tell me: “What is happiness for you?” Lomo on!

    The Magic Yet To Come: Part 1

    Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.

    It is clear from the wild variety of photos in the website that Lomographers will do just about anything to get a good shot.
