During my recent trip to Italy I had a chance to re-charge a bit and revisit places both well known and new. Italy feels like a second home. For many reasons. I have had a chance to take a different look at it this time though, not focusing on soaking up the sun, rather on quite opposite. Because it wasn’t sunny I saw a different country and towns this time. And I liked it. The colours felt different and opportunities for black and white photography were many. Following inspiration from FujiLove and taking it back to one of my favourite movies ”Palermo Shooting” for the colour photography I was decided on the “look” of the photos. It was such a great escape from a busy life and a great pause just before and oncoming busy wedding photography season. Hope the photos are enjoyed. The battery certainly has been recharged and good memories created stay.
