Shelter from the Rain

The bell tower and minaret. Rain clouds hang over the surrounding mountains.

A cross carved into the granite ashlars on the west end of the sixth century basilica. If you look at the higher resolution photograph, you can see a pigeon that has taken shelter from the rain.

    Dear Father Justin,

    Does the bell tower lean a bit or is that just an illusion?

      I have a level on the camera screen, and always make sure that it is horizontal. Even so, the bell tower always looks like it is leaning. This may be an optical illusion, because each level of the bell tower is slightly recessed, so that if each section is straight, the net effect is that it is not straight.

    Dear father Justin,
    I am thankful to you for these divine photographs!
    Such a tender pigeon … feels safe …
