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 !!
