PROJECT 52 – Week 27

the Rose of Assisi
I took this photo during my pilgrimage in Italy (Padua, Rome, Assisi). When we came to the birth place of Saint Francis of Assisi, it was love at first sight. Beautiful town located on a hill, with beautiful stone streets and houses. Paradise for photographers. In this photo you can see The Papal Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, with rose in frontal plan.

PROJECT 52 – Week 26

Prayer in Silence
Another photo from the same pilgrimage to Italy.
Location was Padua in the Pontifical Basilica of Saint Anthony of Padua (Italian: Basilica Pontificia di Sant’Antonio di Padova).
We came to Padua in the morning, and came in the Basilica. I was instantly attracted by this sight that you can see on this photograph, rays of morning light breaking through windows of this great church.
Because we, as a group were in a hurry to go to service in a nearby chapel, I didn’t succeeded to take this shot. I was telling my girlfriend that a missed oportunity never returns. But she told me, while others were taking a break before morning service, that we could return inside the Basilica so i can take a shot at this beautiful sight. And so we did.
Thank you Ana-Marija for helping and believing in me. 🙂

I just love this kind of portrait photography.
Big thanks to Sister Mira and this cute small french boy.
