A portrait of a friend that lives near my old flat. While having a walk I met him and I took an ambient light portrait while he was smoning his pipe.

Many thanks to the wonderful Angela Butler for her kind support.
I love to walk so today I decided to go in the city center of Rome to have a coffee and to take some street pictures. I bringed with me my Canon 5D MKIII with the 35mm F2 Canon lens.
Worked mainly in Aperture mode with an iso that was moving from 400 to 3200 depending on the scene.
Enjoyed the way the new focus system of the camera work and I felt a big difference between the MKIII and the previous generation of 5D.
The first two are images shooted by Tony while I was taking a street portrait.
I was walking in Via Nazionale in Rome when I notice a Taxi Driver on the side of the street having relax smoking a cigarette.
I got as near as I could without asking permission and shot few frames. The man looked at me smiling. I told him I was a street photographer and I showed him the pics.
The last image was the one I choosed from the three frames I shot.
