Travel and photography

” The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.” is a quote from Gilbert K. Chesterton.

I found some other interesting quotes and I want to share them with you today.

“You get educated by traveling.” S. Knowles.  I must say I also learn a lot when I come back home  and take time to research places I visited. While I travel there is  not enough time to get it all.

“We wander for distraction but we travel for fulfillment. ” H. Belloc  I can understand people who don’t like to travel  as we have different personality and needs. would I be bored if I couldn’t go anywhere ? maybe I would investigate more  my own town.

“Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs.” S. Sontag. Yes, photography is giving us opportunity to relive our trips. What can we do with those photos ? A book, a calendar, some cards. You can also share with people on Flickr, Instagram, Facebook, 500px or else.

I do not count anymore the amount of photos I have in folders on my computer. I never try to take less photos knowing I could delete the bad ones when I get home. It takes time to edit after a trip but all my photos create so many memories. They are going to be part of me forever.

Do you have a favorite quote on traveling ? You could share it with me if you want. What have you done with your photos since the digital era ? One thing for sure we take more and more photos as it does not cost more to take  4 or 24 !!

Thank you all for your visit and comments.

    C’est incroyable, c’est ce que j’ai dit à des amis il y a deux jours , ma famille ou amis ne comprennent pas pourquoi je garde tout ce millier de photos 🙂
    Alors je les mets sur disque dur externe , sur Fb et d’autres sites comme Flikr oui .. et je vais me lancer comme toi, France … faire des book !! 🙂

    Bravo encore pour ces photos magnifiques et textes

    Bisous de l’Isère en France

  2. My quote could be, er, sorry France, it’s in French : L’univers est une espèce de livre dont on n’a lu que la première page quand on n’a vu que son pays ( Fougeret de Montron, , XVIII siècle , homme de lettres )
    About my photos, a big part is still in my computer, not a good idea probably 😉

    • you got to do something with your best photos..when you’ll have time but I know you are a busy doc !! je crois que je connais la citation : “The world is a book , and those who do not travel read only one page.” Saint Augustine.

  3. Les souvenirs de voyages, que ce soit des photos ou autres, sont une grande richesse surtout une richesse intérieure.
    À bientôt chère amie!
