When traveling, I became really disenchanted with photography. So many photographers all taking the same shots from the same spots. Why even bother trying to come up with something different?
By the time we got to Rome, I had started leaving my “good” camera at home, instead taking the point and shoot, which also happens to be an underwater camera. This pretty much saved me from a total creative burn out. There was something about dunking it in the fountains, and taking it out while it was pissing down rain that made me feel free to enjoy the experience. Okay, and I had a smug little moment watching the tourists rush to shelter their SLRs from the weather while I happily plonked my camera into a puddle. hehehe
This shot is from our trip to the Trevi Fountain. I thought about straightening it up, but decided I like it crooked. Besides, lots of Italy is a bit crooked (architecturally)
Around 3,000 euros are thrown into this fountain each day. That’s a lot of coins!
