Toward the Heavens
Another capture from the Festa dei Noantri procession, I really loved how the light was captured in the face of this nun as she walked along. I think she was probably looking up at the canopy that was holding the Virgin Mary. She looks rather serene, no? Obviously living in Rome you run into many nuns and members of the clergy, and as a friend once rightly said, they’re always interesting to photograph. Here she actually reminds me a bit of Raphael’s St. Catherine.
I’m leaving on a short summer break this evening and so for the rest of the week I’ll have some posts scheduled, including one guest post. I’ll be back live and in person on Sunday evening. Hopefully tanner and well rested too!
