Ever heard the expression, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”? Well during my visit to Rome I managed to completely smash the lens on my trusty Fujifilm camera. Instead of getting upset I decided to do a small ‘farewell’ series to the old lady by taking some street style shots of the people I met during my travels. Some of the images were completely unsalvageable or overexposed but sometimes it doesn’t matter if you still have the memories.
While outside the Colosseum I met two Italian girls who come to this spot every day to sharpen their illustrating skills and it reminded me of a chat I had with Phil Dean (aka The Shoreditch Sketcher) and the importance of cherishing the little details in life. As a side note, the Colosseum during sunset is pretty magical. Definitely one to tick off the bucket list.
I haven’t done a street style series in a while so it was thrilling to get back into the swing of things. LCM is just around the corner so hit me up using the email below if you wish to link up. In the meantime I’m slowly getting used to the Sigma lens so expect plenty more street style posts in the future.
