Went to Rome for some 16 days in April, 2019.
Travelled light, which means I didn't bring the large Canon DSLR with me. It was just me, a cabin bag and a walking cane I need from time to time when my lumbago condition sets in, so I showed my 12MP Olympus TG5 in a pocket and off we went.
In the 16 days I spent in Rome I took some 1640 (!!) images. Not all of them good, of course not, and the end goal was to make a photobook - or rather photo books - of my visit in Rome. Ok, I've done 5 this far, 2 more ready to go to the lab and 2 or 3 left ...
My interest in Rome is more of a historic and documentary point of view rather than doing subjective and aestetic photography, so since I came home with 1640 images, it is going to take me a good while to load up the ones I selected - going 7 at the time. So please bear with me. Not all images are going to be up your alley, I realise that.
As from the historic point of view I would like you to watch some video about the Baroque. It will help you understand my interest in Rome:

So from this post and a large number of posts to come I will share some of my moments. I do have other projects going on, too, so the uploads may not be in a continous flow.
I visited them more iconic sites of Rome and stayed with what you can see and experience without spending a lot of money on entrance fees all over the place. I'm "cheap" that way and prefere the atmosphere of places before being amazed - which you can be in anyways ...
I may very well be wrong in my naming of places. It can be quite confusing at times, so if you know better - please give us a shout, will you ?
Ok, let's do this !
