You may have noticed that my daily posting has slackened off considerably of late, but this has not been the result of laziness on my part (well not completely), but rather because I’ve been off enjoying celebrating my 28th birthday in the lovely city of Rome.
Rome is a beautiful city with so much to see and do that even with a whole week to explore its environs, there’s still a hell of a lot that I missed out on. Whatever I did have the opportunity to visit though, I’ve dutifully tried to photograph, and I hope that you’ll enjoy this little taste of my photographic record of my voyage to Rome.
The juxtaposition of ancient Roman ruins alongside the elaborate architecture and artworks of the Renaissance is a continuous feast for the eyes, whilst the opportunity to indulge myself in my first experiences of authentic Italian food was a delight for my belly (as was evident by its increased rotundity upon my return).
All the photographs that you see are available to buy in my store, which can be visited by clicking here, or on any of the photos.
Thanks for stopping by,
Here’s a selction of shots that I got of Angkor Wat in Cambodia way back in the heady halcyon days of 2008. This was back when I first got my camera and this was my first proper photo expedition. Unfortunately back then, I didn’t quite know the sublteties of taking good photographs, such as not shooting at midday if you don’t want blown out areas of your shots, or not shooting in jpeg if you want a higher quality image that you can fiddle around with more effectively later.
Still though, it’s one hell of a place to take photographs of, with a fascinating history that I’d recommend one and all check out. One of these days I’ll make a return trip and really nail some good shots of the amazing sites that I was greeted with, but these will just have to do for now.
