Last week I participated a pretty rad event called the Bologna Photo Marathon. An all-day event, the challenge was to take photos of Bologna all day long given a set of “themes”. There were 9 themes in total and every three hours three new “themes” were distributed to particpants. We were encouraged to creatively interpret the themes through our camera lenses and find interesting perspectives. At the end of the day, we had to submit one photo for each theme.
As a beginner photographer, this was a really fun opportunity to practice and challenge my photography skills. It was also a wonderful chance to rediscover Bologna and certain aspects of the city that I never seem to have time to appreciate.
I’d like to share with you some of my favorite photos from the event to give you just a little glimpse of the city I call home.
