It also rains in Genoa

Since having completed work on our Genoa apartment, The Significant Other and I have been down to our new “South home” a few times. But since then, the weather hasn’t been quite our friend yet. Little sun, lots of rain and very inconsistent. Not what you would expect from Italy. It also rains in Genoa. But then again, the weather here is fully in line with the wet winter and mostly grey spring we had in Germany. But the Street Photographer doesn’t care though. Grabbing rain coat and the cam, turning on the subdued monochrome presets and heading out to capture the stories of the streets…..

Today I took the Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 25mm F/1.8 (50mm full frame equivalent) prime for a spin onto the wet streets of Genoa. Haven’t touched this old (I got this cam 7 year ago) street shooter since December 2019. But I truly enjoyed this small package, light like a feather when compared to my Leica SL2-S “brick”, especially when combined with the Elmarit 24-70mm. Although I would wished for the PEN-F to be weather sealed as the Leica on this super rainy day.

I have moved the PEN-F and my collection of micro 4/3 primes to Genoa to have a resident camera set in our “South home” as well. At least now it will be regularly used again And I’m looking forward to it.

Have a great Friday!

  1. Fascinating images! I find black-and-white photography dramatic and dark, but also, like in these images, magical and mysterious. Also, the rain does enhance that magic. Beautiful!
