Skywatch + 100 Strangers
Technically speaking, this isn't a picture of the physical sky, but it is a picture of the metaphorical sky. Cathedrals and basilicas, with their soaring arches and domes, are meant to draw the worshipers' eye skyward toward heaven as a reminder of God. I recently took these photos at the National Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and thought they would be a nice twist for the weekly Skywatch challenge.
And, continuing my 100 Strangers series, I give you a photo of a gentleman contemplating things spiritual and praying the rosary in the same basilica. He looked so peaceful in the midst of all the chaos (i.e. a tour group full of 30 somewhat enthusiastic teenagers from a local Catholic school.)
