MyFriend by Fab64

Evocative shot by Fabio Ligorio taken near Ceglie Messapica, Puglia, Southern Italy.

Looks like a Vespa Cosa from the back. For me this shot sums up the joy & freedom to roam you feel when aboard a vespa....

A shot I took nearby in San Vito dei Normanni's main piazza, while on holiday in Puglia in 2004

Vespa 90cc

Vespa 90cc by 咖啡豆(決定只是開始堅持才是關鍵)

Gorgeous shot taken by 咖啡豆(決定只是開始堅持才是關鍵) on a Rolleiflex film camera, I think in Taiwan...

This shot is the perfect example in terms of why I keep 'banging' on about the beauty of film over digital (& why I only shoot on 35mm film) - check out those tones, bokeh, depth of field...sublime!
