Some more images taken during my last visit to Italy in November last year. These are taken around Firenze/Florence and are shot on Ferrania P30 Alpha with my Olympus OM-1.
Some more images taken with my Canon AE-1 Programme on Ilford FP4 125 on the streets of my home city Cardiff. Yes I am aware I have a mild obsession with photographing bicycles, abandoned or otherwise at the moment.
“Pendolare” is the Italian verb to describe something being like a pendulum going back and for, and also used to describe commuting to and from work. About a year ago the office that the company I work for moved from an out of town and drive-able location to a new building in the city centre, meaning I could no longer drive to work and now had to catch a train. Because of this I realised I had time to read a lot more on the journey and also be able to take a camera with me and document my journey. For the last 12 months this is what I’ve been doing. I decided to go with the title as it happened to be a word I picked up during one of my Italian language classes and I thought it sounded a bit more interesting than boring old English.
Below are some of the images I made across the last year on my regular journey, they’re from a variety of film stocks and cameras and are both digital and analogue, including; Olympus OMD EM5, Olympus OM-1 and Canon AE-1 Programme, Ilford FP4 125 and Fomapan Classic 100. I hope you enjoy and let me know your thoughts.
Some images taken on the streets of Italy when I travelled around the country for a few weeks last November. All images are taken on Ferrania P30 Alpha using my Olympus OM-1. The following were taken in Firenze.
Some Street Photography taken on the streets of Cardiff with my Canon AE-1 Program on Ilford FP4 125. Enjoy.
Some of you that follow this site regularly, or follow me on Twitter or Instagram, may be aware that during November I travelled around Italy on my own, merrily snapping away with a Yashica D and Olympus OM-1. You may also be aware that I was planning to put together some of the images in a zine. Well here it is.
