Photo Friday: Morning on the open road

Today’s Photo Friday comes from Verena and Luciano Lepre.

“In 1996 we quit our jobs and got on our bicycles heading in the general direction of Nepal. We had no set route and no real itinerary, in other words, no definite plans. After travelling in this manner this freedom has transformed us and continues to be an essential part of our lives.

We looked forward to each day’s new adventure, wondering who we would meet and which way we would go. Perhaps at the end of the day we had made some new friends or had had a meaningful conversation or just shared a beautiful smile. Whatever happened, we became certain, despite all the uncertainty, that every stranger could be a friend and that every unknown could be an interesting opportunity.”

Do take a look at their super photography.

    Super start to my day!

  2. Simply beautiful. I wish I was on the road now, not in bloody Doncaster!

  3. I love all your Photo Friday photos and talks – they inspire me into the weekend.
    Thank you

  4. What a beautiful photo, really is!


  5. Their photography is quite magical. I bumped into Verena completely by chance while cycling through Switzerland – a really lovely person who inspired me no end. It’s even more astonishing that the tens of thousands of shots they took were all on 35mm film – not a digital camera in sight!
