I’ve always had a huge passion for photography and sport, so having a post that combined the best of the two was an idea I just had to carry out. As there so many great sporting photographs I’ve decided to separate them into two posts, starting with black and white images. Do you have a favourite of the eight? Has there ever been a sporting moment you wish you had been able to take a photograph of?
As Part 1 helped show, Rome really was the most gorgeous place. There wasn’t a drop of rain and it was always the right weather to go outside for a walk. There are so many lovely bars, cafes and restaurants everywhere, that getting a drink, meal or an ice cream was always a temptation. And one temptation that was always given in to!
Rome really is delightful. I was inspired to do two film quizzes, a review of the Vatican and numerous photographs from my recent trip with Madeleine. But I just had to do more. It’s the first time that I’ve really had the chance to see the city properly, having only had a quick glance in a stopover trip a few years ago.
The Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary is a charity in Rome that is run completely by a small team of dedicated volunteers. The sanctuary looks after vulnerable cats, giving them vital medical treatment, a place to roam freely and the opportunity to be housed safely before they are adopted.
When out with Madeleine in Rome, near the Colliseum, we saw this man designing names with a Chinese theme on a strip of paper. There wasn’t a long queue, and he said it wouldn’t take long so I thought, why not? Madeleine took a photo while he was halfway though. I put the final effort on my door.
