Going Underground

Whilst in Rome we took my favourite form of transport. (I should really say it’s Baz’s new souped up car, but I don’t get any shots from that.) If you look at the first two shots, you may only notice slight differences, apart from one being nice and clean...

The EM5 Is Gone!

I’ve just returned from what is now becoming an Annual Event of visiting Baz &Mrs Baz in Rome. Once again their hospitality was second to none. Again it was unbroken sunshine with the temperatures hovering around the 35C mark. Slightly warmer than the rain soaked land that is the...

Remembering the Sun

Sitting at the computer, looking out of the window at the gloomy day with the rain falling down, I sit back and remember those beautiful sunny days spent in Rome. So to cheer myself up I took a look at the shots from our time in Rome with Baz...

Return to Rome

No, I haven’t been back to Rome. Yet! Thanks to the invite from Baz and Mrs Baz we will be returning in August. The flights are booked and the countdown has started. Whilst making the flight booking the memories of last year came flooding back. I thought with it...

Roman Gestures

I love the way the Mediterranean people gesticulate, but especially the Italians. I didn’t catch that many on my trip so slightly disappointed. I did however get “The Ham Carver” in the earlier post “The Market Traders of Pomezia”. I’ve put together a few here and have given them...

Shooting the Sequence

I thought I would show the sequence of shots that led me to liking the Final Shot “Mobile Hairdresser”, in the previous post “Head On in Rome”, so much. This is a reminder of the narrative of the shot: “With the final shot of the Blog I was shooting...

Head On in Rome

I’ve been working through the shots I got in Rome, and boy there are not only loads, but so many keepers. As a break from sorting and preparing the blog posts, (I still have many to come), I took a few that I hadn’t put aside for blogs, to...

The Faces of Authority

You don’t have to be in Rome long before you realise that there are so many enforcers. In the UK we have The Police, which are throughout the country, but run regionally but still following the same laws. More recently Community Support Officers, who are similar to the Police...
