I know I could have done a couple of things to take a better shot!
I might have taken the picture more centered on the “candelora”, but how missing the woman at the window?
I should have gone downstairs to take pictures, but how could have I get from there the perspective of “common people at home” that like had the afternoon brighten up by such a gesture of religious devotion? Ok, it’s not the most pious manifestation of devotion (you should have listened to the “curious” music they were playing) but still, it’s a good aspect of the life here in Catania.
And probably I could have done a better work on to get a picture with both the aspects of the “common people at home perspective” and the “woman at the window”, but that’s what I got today… the story looks told anyway ^_^
P.S. I admit, I didn’t want to take care of Saint Agata festivity this year (that means:I didn’t want to go out taking pictures of the festivity)… as you can see my blog fell into a silent period because I want seriously to pass a couple of exams in the following 6 weeks.
Of course, this year, for the first time since I have memory, a candelora passed on the street where I live. Curious coincidence that is making me thinking a lot.
P.P.S. In the following days I might post a few other shots taken this afternoon…. I am still thinking if it’s a good idea or not.
