CAMERA: Olympus Trip 35
FILM: Agfa Vista 200
In 2015 I made the mistake of visiting Rome in the heat of summer. It was convenient because a friend from Australia was passing through, but the amount of time we spent running back to the apartment to sit under the air-conditioning kind of took away from my usual routine of exploring a new city. The highlight of the trip was the Azzedine Alaïa exhibition at the Galleria Borghese, getting to see his wonderful constructions next to exquisite sculptures by Bernini was quasi-surreal. I’m looking forward to seeing the new exhibition of his clothing at the Design Museum here in London, but you can’t beat the setting of the Galleria Borghese!
I would like to return to Rome again when it is less hot, so I can visit Giolitti and not have my ice-cream melt everywhere immediately. It would be nice to be able to take my time to get around the city and not run from the heat every five minutes.
I didn’t make the best choice for film speed, so most of the photos have too much camera shake to even consider sharing. Another reason to return!
