The Dark and the Light

Weekly Photo Challenge – Contrasts: I wasn’t looking for the sign of the cross but as I have explained in an earlier post, foreign churches provide respite and salvation from the beloved’s own religion – shopping.  This one was especially cool and dark, in stark contrast to the heat rising from the narrow streets of Lucca – ‘hotter than a match head’:

      Thanks so much Cindi – when the challenge came up, I immediately remembered this image and this day.

    I see angel wings in your ‘cross’. Either way, a brilliant shot!

    • northumbrianlight · July 4, 2014

      Many thanks Safia – I like that, I had not thought of angel wings.
