Seen on the streets of Rome


Street photography is easy and difficult at the same time. Easy: you just walk around and the subjects are there. Difficult: how to approach the subjects? See POTN Forum for good source of hints for this kind of shooting.

Here are my photographs from the walks on the streets of Roma during March 2011.

    I don’t know why, but most people seem so sad – perhaps it’s the monochrome. What sort of camera do you use? Why all black and white except for the brilliant photo of the excellent pavement artist. I’m enlarging that!

    • We all have the possibility to interpret (read) street photographs as we like, that is something I like in those. I like also the mood b&w creates, the content of the image is then more ‘concentrated’. – These pictures I took with Canon 7D & Sigma 17-70mm and Canon G9.

    Great photos! Looks like another day in Rome!

  3. You, my friend, have more than captured the esence of the city; you have perfectly portrayed the daily play we all perform in. With our swagger, our uniforms, our migrants, our sleeping in public…

    Very inspiring, Olli! As a Roman, i can’t deny i feel proud to see such an optimistic, accurate photo essay about my city.🙂
