If there’s a Cheeky Wednesday somewhere out there in the blogosphere, I’m pretty sure I just participated in it. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter.
After a long, wandering, aimless day, we got lost on our walk home and wound up out much later than we’d intended. Thankfully the Colosseum lights helped us find our way. (One of many benefits of having a place to stay in the heart of the city.) Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter.

Plus a bit of asymmetrical symmetry, because my photography goesContinue reading “Unnecessary Steps (Rome, Italy)”
Experiment in asymmetrical symmetry. Shot on iPhone 8, black and white filter.
Sometimes you gotta shoot the “wrong thing”. The only source of light into the Pantheon comes from the center (the oculus).
