Rome in black and white on a rainy night.

The past few months have been hectic for me here in Rome, with work taking me away on some exciting trips outside of the city, hence the lack of posting.  I haven’t put my camera away, but have found myself using my phone more and more to capture moments when I’m out and about.  My aging shoulders can’t seem to take the constant carrying of the camera like they used to!  For people interested in seeing images of my travels, check out the Urban Wanderer tumblr that I’ve created.  This will also document the upcoming months, when I’ll be spending some time in the US for work.  My stay there through March means that I’ll likely not be updating the blog for a little awhile.  I must say, unlike many of my ex-pat friends here in Rome, I’ve never spent much time in the US since when I moved to Rome in 2005, so this will be an adventure for me.  I’m interested to be back in the US and also to be in a new urban environment to stimulate my photography. I have a few ideas for new projects bubbling in my head for when I return, and I think that a bit of time away never hurts to come back with new energy to Rome.

In the meantime, I’m leaving you with this slideshow of some of the Instagram images I’ve been posting over the past months.  The selections represent my favorites from Rome.  Arrivederci for now!

  1. I really like the photo of the empty market stall with all the veggies wilting. It’s a perspective not usually associated with a market.

  2. Nice artistic pictures. you don’t give the whole scene away but leave enough room for interpertation and thought about what it is the pictures shows.
