Wonderful picture, Marilyn.

My wife and I were looking around and taking pictures in this church when the priest suddenly appeared. I was afraid we'd be chastised for taking pictures inside the church. Instead, he turned the lights on for us and gave us a guided tour.

Only after we returned to the States did I see the priest's picture in a Conde Nast magazine and learn that he was in fact the Bishop. What a surprise!

Thank you for reminding me of our time in Malta.

Best wishes, Leo

I know well the apprehension you felt, Leo! That was a nice surprise--and a further surprise when you got home! Cheers, Marilyn

Another great capture Marilyn. The sign looks more like a description than an instruction.

The sign and the sculpture are perfect together. Thanks, Marilyn, I love this one!

Thank you, John, pingu57, Anne, Keith, Jacques, and Nawitka. And Keith, you are right: the sign seemed more descriptive than prescriptive.

Best wishes, Marilyn

Thank you, blai and Daniela. I think it probably slows my breathing and lowers my blood pressure just to sit and look at the picture! Cheers, Marilyn

Silence is golden, as is your photo of this beautiful Angel. Y.S. I liked Leo's tale about the Bishop:) Best wishes, Anita

Belated thanks, Anita. This came just after we'd left on our big trip! Best wishes for the new year, Marilyn
