one of the most beautiful towns on the French Riviera
We're back in the village of Gorbio for the inauguration of the church's new facade. Here, one of the priests who will officiate waits for his moment - hands behind his back.

This is a wonderful photo, so unusual. Amazing what they have done with the church. Thanks for taking us through the whole process.
I like this picture. It has a sense of mystery. Love the hands!
The picture shows a clean cloak. Is that a sign? The Pope is pleading his case about priests who abuse children – I wonder what stories he doesn't tell? I have nothing against Catholics or any other religion but I don't have any more respect for the clergy than I do used car salesmen and politicians.Still, the photograph is nice. I like the composition and color contrasts.
Those hands, weathered and classic.
I am glad that his remarks are being held in such a dignified leather portfolio. I would be worried if he was holding some notes written on the back of an envelope or a napkin.
The contrast between his smooth robes and his aged hands is stunning.
Great photo. Visually intriguing but seemingly simple.
