Today’s feature is a travel story from Sicily, the island region of Italy. Film photographer Lisa Carbone, born in Germany but with a background of both German and Sicilian, captured the island of her roots on 35mm film. Here is more from Lisa about her connection to Sicily and the inspiration she gains from its nature and culture…

I’m sharing my observations of the island, the colors of Sicily, and the calmness you’ll find, where time is slowing down and things that matter are shifting.

Of quiet places between hectic traffic and barkers selling their goods. And land so far apart from each other that sometimes all you’ll hear are the sounds of nature: the wild grass blowing in the wind, the mowing of grazing goats, or waves, running out on the beach.

The fascinating richness of colors, the bright turquoise of the sea that enters the constant blue of the sky, a fluid, for the eyes a sometimes almost invisible, fusion. The endless varieties of beige, what refers to the unsettling dry, but in between a delightful pop of color, a steady reminder of the worlds vitality.

An invitation of a place to live in the now, each day by its day.

Beautiful photos (especially #1&3), and beautiful description of Sicily. I hope to be able to see it in person some day.
