A Second Christmas…?

Christmas, again? At the end of January?

Absolutely! That’s how it felt anxiously awaiting for the time Temple Rome’s darkroom opened for the semester and I could finally develop the four rolls of film I shot over the break. What I especially love about film photography is that I’m more inclined to take adventurous photos—I’m sure that’s not what you’d expect to hear when each roll costs five or six euros and you’re limited to 36 shots! Whereas I take more documentary style photographs with my phone, I love that black and white film encourages me to play with the depth of field, lighting, and texture. So… Let me share some of my favorite shots!

A sculpture in the Uffizi Gallery.
The shadow of the Duomo from the top.
The Benedictine monastery at Subiaco.
The film’s grainy quality makes a rainy day at Civita di Bagnoregio especially picturesque.
Sunlight on the grand staircase at Caserta.
Some great texture in Herculaneum.
A conservator in Pompeii.
Of course, I had to photograph one of Pompeii’s special residents.
Documenting those who left their mark on Mount Vesuvius.
And last but not least, what I would consider my dream house in Positano.
