You know I tend to take a lot of random pictures when I really want to finish a roll of film. Since I have a strong tendency to switch between my Canon AE-1 and my Canon T50, there’s almost always an unfinished roll of film in one of them. I forget about the one I was using and pick up whichever one is closest, though I’m growing very fond of the AE-1. Some of these are in Nocera Umbra, some are from driving around the Umbria and Marche regions, the mountains and the building are in Pioraco and finally there’s some pictures of when I went for a walk alone around the Via dei Fori Imperiali in Rome. There’s blurry pictures, focused pictures, cool tones, warm tones, high contrast, low contrast, details, landscapes, cityscapes, gold, cars, roads… There’s everything you can think of, everywhere, at once. I like that in a film; although it might (well, obviously is) a sign of distraction and lack of mental organisation, I genuinely enjoy getting back something when I don’t remember exactly what’s in it. It’s exciting and never fails to drive me down memory lane.
Some of my favourites are the pictures taken at the church, the crowd in Piazza di Spagna, the empty roads in the periphery of Rome (around Cinecittà) when I had to pick up a DHL package from their HQ, the lonely winter tree, and, of course, the silhouette of the mountains against a clear, darkening sky. It’s me, I just fangirl over nature in general. I also really like the random photograph of the factory where you can almost see the stars behind the sunset, I think it’s one of my prettiest pictures of the sky yet.
