What was the First Photo that Made you Proud?


This is my first. I took this photo during a school trip to Rome in 1995, when I was 15 years old. I don’t remember where exactly in Rome it was taken. At the high school I attended, Anciet Greek and Latin were compulsory subjects. The trip to Rome was intended to let us students finally experience all that we were taught the years before.

The photo was shot with a simple Rollei point-and-shoot camera that my mom had bought before I left for Rome. It was the very first time I took a step back and think about composition. Before I got the developed photos back from the lab, I knew already that this one would be my best shot from the trip to Rome!
