How many times you have gone somewhere (public demonstration, event, concert, etc) where yo saw other people shooting photos and you though “some of them MUST be flickr’ers”…. but you never had the guts to go and introduce yourself?
Now it’s time to show off that you are a Flickr’er, and let other people figure it out.
Every year proud Romans celebrate the birth of the Eternal City (21 April), founded by Romulus in 753BC, with a series of events at venues throughout Rome, including the Roman Forum and the Campidoglio.
Celebrations include parades, gladiator shows, traditional Roman banquets and public speeches galore from local historical societies.
I have decided to try and partecipate in the photographic contest “the assignment”, sponsored by Canon. Even if I have shot technically better portraits, I thought that this one was one of the most spontaneous, plus it suited the theme well:
“[…] Are you able to capture pure emotion in a single shot? Can you portray a person’s life-story with one photograph? […]”
The other I considered, the picture of the Arrotino would have been a person’s life story… but that was shot with an old film camera, a Pentax…. I thought it might not be seen that well in a Canon contest… 🙁
But this picture – it is about emotions. It is about having fun no matter your age. Who says when we grow up we must be serious ? So I called it “Youth is a State of Mind”.
Anyway, the picture is posted here:
If you like it, please vote for it – after the 5th of May when the votes will be actually open.
