I’ve been to Rome many times before and I’ve even taken my camera and shot many photos there.  However, with each year I improve in my photography, so this trip was quite special for me as I was able to finally get some of the shots I’ve always wanted to get.  I tried to play with the light more and find unique ways to highlight the sites at all times of day with natural lighting.  For amusement (and to see how far I’ve come in 4 years) – you can see an old photo documentary I did of the dirtier side of the city here – Rome’s Dirty Little Secret. Granted, I still have a long way to go, but it’s always fun to go back to a place and see improvement; it means you are growing.

Being in Rome this time with a better camera and better skills was fun, and going with my niece made it even more fun as everything was new to me through her eyes.  I loved seeing what pictures she took and what caught her eye.  Next week I’ll be writing all about our Rome experiences and sharing more photos of these specific places, but this should good pre-show!
