The new market at Testaccio. I took a shot of it, more than one hundred days ago, and with the occasion I wrote about the place, the city planning, and other stuff. This time there is a man in a suit, wandering at night inside the shut-down market. I don’t know what he was doing (other than unintentionally posing for my daily shot), cause I didn’t wait to see that, but I rather stopped, shot, and kept moving fast.
I had an important meeting to attend. The curators working on my first serious exhibition gave me an appointment at “Porto Fluviale”, a trendy bar/restaurant/pizzeria in the neighborhood Ostiense. The place isn’t far from my flat, and I decided to have a walk for a change. During the walk I stumbled upon this view and I took it. After one year of daily photographing, I’m getting really quick at raising the camera to the eye, setting aperture and iso, focusing, and framing.
Back home I made up my mind to have evening walks like this as often as possible for the next three weeks. In twenty one days the 365(+1) Days of NEX-7 will be over and, around the same date, I’ll have to start printing the images for the exhibition (which will be focused on my nocturnal shots). Since for both these reasons I will probably put this kind of photographic production to an halt after the 11th of February, I now feel I should make the best out of the remaining time to produce some good new material…
