This week’s Black&White Wednesdays is all about an antique tradition in Rome: back in the days, there were “vetturini” who were drivers of a public service horse-drawn coaches taking people around. Once commonly used by the roman people, it is nowadays used only by the tourist to get a tour of Rome for quite a lot of money I guess. Trotting on the sampietrini is actually not the best thing for horses since it is a hard surface not suitable for their hooves.

However, this is one of the first photos I took that I actually like a lot (even in colors): the depth of field is enough to understand something about the background, to see that it is on Piazza di Spagna (if you are familiar with Rome of course), and yet the horse only in focus. Horses are my favorite animals, I rode horses for more than 15 years and I loved it; then for a series of reason I had to stop. Lucky enough my best friend breeds horses at Kintos Horsebreeding, so whenever I want I can go back in time for some nostalgia about riding horses and having them around. Seeing foals being born is the most exciting thing ever. Will share that soon too!
