We just finished an incredible 10 days in Italy where a client hired me to photograph their annual incentive trip for their top salespeople. I brought Julie and Reagan, of course and extended our trip for several days after the job was done. The first 6 nights were in the Waldorf Astoria’s Rome Cavalieri on a hill overlooking the city; simply breathtaking!! I’ll be posting the usual images of Rome as well as Sorrento and Positano on the Amalfi Coast but, first, I decided to post images that are NOT the normal vacation photos.
I love to photograph old abandoned buildings and Italy has no shortage of subject matter. I chose to rent a car to drive from Rome down to Sorrento and it was a struggle to not stop every 5 minutes to photograph something.
The images below are from our drive back toward Rome on our final day. They are near a town called Mondragone but I could not find any information about them. First, I saw this old abandoned church on the side of the road:
Then I noticed two small square holes in the door and it was just big enough to fit my lens inside and this is what I found:
I LOVE photographing this kind of stuff; I’m pretty sure nobody else gets Italy pictures like this! I had also noticed what looked like an abandoned hotel off the highway. The drone came in handy for some of these shots.
More to come soon!!
