Travelling to Rome I was unsure of wether to bring my camera. I’m glad I did. There was a folk festival in a field out by our hotel, people of all ages were dancing and singing. I like the Cartier-Bresson quote: “Wherever enough goes on so that I could approach them on tip-toes and take my photographs without disturbing them”. There was noise, excitement and several other photographers. People were unusually gracious (ushering me to the front of the stage!) and it was easy to turn up and shoot with only a few words of Italian.
These are snapshots, there is no story or underlying reason to make them bar that photography is fun and people look awesome when they dance.
Also it seems Italians know how to light. They remembered to push light out into the crowd so people weren’t dancing in a black pit. This made capturing the atmosphere of the festival a lot easier!
