Street Photography in Napoli

Napoli - Spaccanapoli (Historic center)

Napoli - Spaccanapoli (Historic center)

I’m definitely not a fan of mobile cameras, but I took this photo nearly 2 years ago using a smart-phone Nexus One.
Of course it’s very light and discreet, something that helps a lot in street photography.
I’ve just found this on the mobile, I totally forgot about this random shot I took. It’s unedited as come from the mobile.

I love this kind of photography, taking frames of real life. I’m definitely going to use more the 5D II with a 17-40mm on the street more often than ever.

That particular photo was in the center of Napoli, in a street called Spaccanapoli (literally translated “break-Napoli”) that divides the historic center in two parts.
I particularly like the “story” of the couple talking on the bottom left part and the contrast of the white balance of the cold light outside on the street and the warmth you can fell in the shop.
