6 frozen moments on the roads of Italy

6 frozen moments on the roads of Italy

What according to you is the most complex, enigmatic and unfathomable natural phenomena on this earth?

For us the answer is always, humanity, the people of this world.

Thus it is small wonder that we always try to capture and freeze the tableaux of the lives of people in our cameras whenever and wherever we travel.

Recently we were reading about street photography on National GeographicΒ and were inspired to share some of our experiments with you, though we must confess we are no where compared to the amazing photographs captured in National Geographic.

This post brings to you 6 such moments frozen in time from different places in Italy.

    I sadly understand too well a few of these images, particularly the lady at Pisa. And I have also captured awkward landmark wedding pics around Italy… Why do people do that? Do they want wedding photos with tourists?

    Those are some very well captured shots! Just in moment.
    Also reminded me of my Italian adventure 😊😊
    Thank you for sharing 😊

    what a fun idea! I’m going to be walking the streets of LA’s arts district today. I may have to try this out!

    Wow, those are incredible! You really captured the daily life in each place. So often I try to focus only on the scenery or an important monument, but your inclusion of people really adds to the depth of each place!

    As funny and awkward as these photo’s are, I love them in a way. Business is business, and if I could do mine while seeing amazing things, that seems like a pretty good trade-off!

    They are still quite wonderful pictures.. and yes business is business, even in front of the tower. I guess we are so used to being surrounded by these beauties we do not even care anymore…

    These are so much fun! I love people watching when I’m traveling. You definitely found some fantastic moments!

    Love these shots! I feel like in my travels, I focus too much on capturing beautiful, picturesque places/sights (rather than moments and people, as you’ve done here). There’s certainly beauty in these moments as well πŸ™‚ maybe I should make more of an effort to capture them!

    I love to try and subtly capture the everyday people going about their lives… I’m sure the Colosseum would be an amazing backdrop, but for that temporary fencing πŸ˜‰

    Really interesting moments indeed! Those balancing characters are pretty remarkable. I love frozen moments from my travels, even if they aren’t perfect like those of National Geographic! You always have something to aspire to anyway! πŸ˜‰

    These are great photos and enthralled with the balancing act, wonder how he does that one? Must have been a fun experience. Love freeze 3, Traditional outfits for various things around the world always bring a smile to my face for some reason.

    The picture on the bottom made me so sad. There is a big and beautiful world around us to discover and she is missing out on taking it all in. Sadly a lot of peoople are like that now.

    Very interesting photos. They capture some poignant moments. We also love seeing photos of things and people that we didn’t even know we photographed.

    This is amazing! I think it’s nice to capture moments such as these. They give you a glimpse of the life of other people when they’re in Italy.

    I do have a couple of shots from my trips but they’re not as cute as yours. Mine are like serious & artsy – will those count as well?

    PS. I love your pics! The one with the guards is my fave.

    I really loved your freeze moments! Especially the one of the lady handling businessπŸ˜‚

    I love your frozen moments! I cannot believe I haven’t done any traveling for leisure this past year so I don’t have any frozen moments :/

    I love the idea of the glimpses into street life. The balancing act is my favorite just because it’s so mesmerizing to me! The dog is super cute too!
