As you might have figured out, I’m taking photojournalism class this semester, and I’ve been putting together my collection for my final project. It’s a shame (for you, not me) no one was around to point and laugh at me as I went about taking my “Portraits of Strangers.” In the States, asking random people if I could photograph them would be pretty awkward, so multiply that by about a thousand since 80% of the people I shot didn’t speak English. I’m not awesome at Italian (understatement of the year), but lemme tell you, if there’s one thing I know by now, it’s how to say, “Can I take your photo?”
My favorite park in Florence – sitting by the playground?
She’s eighty. Eighty freaking years old.
…yeah. Another vanity shot of the love of my life. (Call me!??)
I’d love any feedback – these are five of my favorites lately, but expect more coming soon.
