Little Update

Buona Sera followers, friends and casual readers/viewers alike, as you may have noticed from the last week or so of lack of updates to this site I am not currently in the UK. Although if you saw my post from yesterday where I said that I wasn’t currently in the UK then you probably already know.

I am at present sat in a very nice, if slightly small, Airbnb in Lucca, Italy, having just finished my first week of travelling around this beautiful country with the dual aim of seeing places I have always wanted to see and shooting a million rolls of film at the same time. So far, so good.

I thought that I’d post up a quick update style post this evening though just so nobody thinks I’ve gone completely off the radar, and as tomorrow I will be off to my favourite city on the planet, Florence, for the next week, it seemed fitting to share an image I took the last time I was there. I’m aiming to recreate this on medium format and hopefully a much better exposure.

Project 52: Week 41; Landscape – Get High

OK this subject is more like it, Landscape I can do, getting high up I can do, taking landscape photo’s from high places I can do. Now whether or not they’re any good is debatable but there we go. This week’s image is taken from the top the Duomo in Firenze, Italia and gives a view of the city looking across to the River Arno and the hills of Tuscany in the distance. The Palazzo Vecchio is on the bottom right and the Piazzelle Michelangelo is dead centre on the first hill rising up on the other side of the river.

Project 52: Week 17; Landscape – Urban/Cityscape

Well for the first time in a while an image I have recently taken perfectly fit’s the bill for this week’s subject; Landscape – Urban/Cityscape. And although I’ve posted a couple of version’s of this shot already, I haven’t posted this one (despite how similar it look’s).

Berlin

A small sneak peek at one of the images I took in Berlin over the Weekend, this also being the only one in colour as the rest are mostly of a street photography genre and we all know I only shoot that in black & white. Taken on my Olympus OM-D EM-5 with Panasonic Leica Summilux 25mm 1.4 lens, not a lens I would normally take this kind of photograph with but just happened to be the one I had at the time.
