I’ve never been to Italy before but wanted to and especially so Rome, with my girlfriend being Italian I have had all the more reason to finally go. Cue long weekend away, leisurely sight seeing and lots of lunches, dinner, great eating and drinking. I wasn’t on a photo-mission but took my gear with the intention of selective usage. What I found though was that there is jaw dropping incredible beauty literally everywhere. Rome has been described as being like an open museum which I found a great analogy – you can’t walk fifty meters without finding something of historical beauty. Rome is this fantastic merging of era’s, from ancient Rome to the present day, all seamlessly blended into one amazing city. It’s a photographer’s delight, but I kept a rein on my impulses and limited my shooting to a few select occasions. One weekend doesn’t Rome justice though, I will definitely be going back for more exploration and understanding of that amazing place.
