For Nashville, TN-based photographer Emily Blincoe, being on the road is like coming home, and the pictures she captures become the mementos she totes from place to place.
Blincoe, who posts her photos @emilyblincoe, recently spoke to Life and Money by Citi about her mobile life.
Describe your typical day.
Emily: There are no typical days for me, really. Lately, I’m on the road about half the time and home in Nashville or Austin the other half. I start to get antsy if anything I’m doing feels repetitive — which is probably why I enjoy traveling so much. I love waking up somewhere new and seeing, trying and experiencing new things; it keeps me inspired.
I have learned to set a few rules for myself though. No matter where I’m waking up, I set the tone for the day with a healthy breakfast and a 10-minute meditation. No social media is allowed within the first hour of waking up. I also give myself some time for administrative tasks like answering emails. I try to handle as much as possible early in the day so the rest of the day is freed up for other things.
