As regular followers of this site may be aware across November I took a trip around Italy, travelling from Turin to Rome and stopping off in Genoa, Lucca and Florence on the way. I’ve shared a few of the images I took as and when I had the chance while I was still in Italy, and as the vast majority of the images I shot were done so on film that hasn’t yet come back from the lab, at present I don’t have a huge amount to show for it. That is except for these.
This is a small selection of images, mostly snapshots, I took while out there using my digital Olympus OMD EM5 and it’s 17mm M.Zuiko 1:1.8 lens. I will stress these are “snapshots”, the good stuff (i.e. shot on medium format film)should be available to share by the end of this week or early next week. Enjoy these for the moment.
Hello again, you may or may not be aware I am currently in Italy and have been for the past two weeks or so. What you may not be aware of is that I return to the UK in a few days time (Tuesday night to be specific), which is a ‘BOOOOO!’ moment except for the fact that it means I can get back to sharing images on here more regularly (hoorah) and start the laborious process of developing the 25 rolls or so of film that I have taken.
Anyway until I can get that lot developed here’s a few images from the trip that aren’t taken on film, these have been posted on my Instagram already but you may not look at that so here they are again, all are digital and from my Olympus OMD EM5. Enjoy.
I thought I’d take today to revisit a photograph or two that have already featured on this blog but featured some time ago, and therefore probably not been seen by the number of people who have taken an interest and/or followed this since they were originally posted. I’ve also posted some new one’s which I can’t figure out why I didn’t post them originally.
So as I’ve spent a large part of today doing homework (yes I am nearly 30 and that sound’s weird to me also) for the Italian classes I’ve been taking I thought I’d go back through some of the photo’s I took when me and my girlfriend visited Rome at the beginning of the year. I absolutely loved that city and it also mean’s I can make a post with that doesn’t involve an Olympus for the first time in a while, all of these were shot on my trusty old Nikon FM with 28mm lens and on Agfa Vista Plus 200 film, I hope you like them because I certainly do.

Probably my favourite photo I took from my trip to Rome earlier this year, I just really like the framing and the dome of the building poking above the rooftops in the centre of the shot. Taken on my Nikon FM with 28mm lens on Agfa Vista 200 film, f8 1/250th sec. (more…)
This is what greets you after around 300-400 odd spiralling, narrowing, horrendous steps when you climb to the top of St Peters Basilica in the Vatican, another 100 odd and you’re on top of it. (more…)
