Vertical Rome

Went back to Rome almost 8 years after my previous visit.

Looking at my photos from this trip it struck me that many of my favorite pictures were vertical — Rome's architecture and narrow streets lend themselves very well to the camera being held that way round.

Pictures here taken with a mixture of my Leica M10 and Zeiss Ikon rangefinders. Most pictures were taken with my Leica Summicron 50mm f2, plus a couple from my Voigtländer Super Wide Heliar 15mm f4.5. Mixture of Fuji Neopan 100 and Kodak TMAX 400 films.
