Was in Campo dei Fiori where there are all kinds of people doing their thing including this guy who was just being Italian with his shades and his acqua con limone. I took the shot because he epitomized “the Italian” just sitting there.
I love finding good espresso on the road (and at home). I started shooting these illy moments out of thin air while sitting there sipping a coffee and it became a sort of subject matter for me. The espressamente illy bars are always a welcome sight (especially in airports) and the chrome and the red make for great images. This slideshow has shots from Dubai, Shanghai, Italy, Spain, France, Greece, and USA.
Trying something new here today. Had this old photo I shot in Rome in the mid nineties that I thought I’d run through Instagram before posting it here to see how’d it fit in. This was a funny scene that just sort of happened in split second. This was shot in Piazza Navona in Rome in early evening where the was a photo shoot of the model on the left. Out of the blue comes in this drunk guy with bottle in hand and he decides to get in the act with the model. Loved his expression and italian gesture with his arm. He was having a great time crashing the photo shoot.
I hopped on the back of my good Roman friend’s Scooter and we took off from his office across town for a late afternoon apertivo at Bar Rosati. This trip takes you from Via delle Quattro Fontane over to Piazza del Popolo with a bit of Largo Chigi and the Tiber in between. I thought it’d be cool to shoot a photo every so many minutes along the short ride.
Took a morning stroll through the market of Campo dei Fiori in Rome. The scene is great for coffee, cornetti, and fresh ingredients. There are other localized markets in the city but this one is on a path so many walk down. When the market is over late morning the piazza goes quiet until evening when a restaurant & bar scene comes to life.
