Beautiful Rome in Black and White

When in Rome, go black and white. Hmmm, maybe that’s not the phrase, but that’s what’s happening here. Rome is a beautiful city with art and culture at every turn. From the Trevi Fountain to the Colosseum to St Peter’s Basilica, The Roman Forum and The Pantheon there’s loads to do and see in one of Italy’s hottest destinations. I realised when I came home that it was actually my black and white photos of Rome that brought out the beauty.

I visited in June and had a brilliant time wandering the streets scoffing as many flavours of gelato as possible as I went. Of course the pizzas here are some of the best you’ll ever try, add some wine to quaff them back with and some sunshine out on the restaurant patio and you’ve got yourself  a brilliant Rome holiday.

    Great photos, Vicky! Love the ones of the Colosseum and the Pantheon in particular. I definitely need to go back to Rome!

    My favourite is the one of you looking up at the Colosseum. I should shoot in B&W more often. These look fab!

      Thanks Ari - pretty cool aren't they? I really like black and white photography, but at the same time I feel it's such a shame to suck all the colour out of everything. I tend to take one in b+w and then take one in colour too.
