The Vatican

The Vatican, Rome, Italy. This has been a fun slide for me. I like the beam of light falling across the column. It gives the shot a heavenly feel. And the kid reminds me of innocence. Another soft shot, but at the time, I probably was using ASA 100 slide film. Inside the Vatican, it was dark. Without changing over to faster film, my shutter speed was soooo slow. I still got a good handheld shot. I probably still had my f1.4 50mm lens.

    • I took this photo when I visited Rome back in the 1970’s before I met your mom. It was on slide film.
