A few days ago, The Significant Other and I headed down to Genoa to spend a weekend in La Suberba, as the ancient Italian Marine Republic at the Ligurian coast is affectionately called. And a good opportunity for some candid street photography…
Having lived in Genoa from 2001 to 2005, returning to La Superba for us is always like returning home. Besides always visiting with many dear friends we still have there, the hometown of Christopher Columbus is always a great place to do street shooting in the historic city center, inserted onto the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2006.
The harsh summer sun is always providing awesome light for some high contrast monochrome photography, as the lights and shadows between the old buildings are providing a great background for the scenes of Italian life that unfold in front of the lens.
Besides visiting with the many dear friends we still have down there, we always enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle, the sun and the warmth around the year, the sights and sounds of the historic coastal city and the awesome Italien food.
The photographs were all taken with a vintage Fujifilm X-Pro1 (2012) that I recently acquired on ebay for cheap money, because I always wanted to try out a Fuji X series cam. But more on this in a separate post.
Wish you a great Thursday!
