ROME / Sunday / January 22nd, 2012

As it was and as it will be.

Rome. I still can’t get this place out of my head. I want to live in itsĀ  architecture, eat its food every day, have its language roll effortlessly off my tongue, wear its intricately tailored garments, travel its little back-roads by chariot and marry a few of it’s ridiculously handsome and charming sons.

I know this is weird, but I’ve always pictured Italy in grayscale. Blame it on my love for the rawness of Italian neo-realism film, romance and a tendency to process photographs through Adobe Lightroom more than I probably should. Thus, with my camera lens and imagination, I’ve chosen to remember Italy the same way I always dreamed it to be. Except this time, it was real :)

  • These pictures are just wow! Italy works in grey scale.
    Going to London soon armed with my Diana Mini and a three rolls of black and white film.
