Theme Day: Contrast at the Procession Votive

  29. Oh my, another fabulous "Jilly Portrait" . This one is just the best. I loved the entire procession and getting to meet the participants up close has been so special. Contrast indeed. I hope this father gets a copy of this photograph.

  30. I forgot to add that the light is gorgeous. Ordinarily this bright light wouldn't work but here it is just right! I like the space you left beside her too. Great composition.
