Thank you, Amelia, Giorgio, Rapid, Hank, Tamás, and blai. When I first saw this, I thought, "I can't take a picture of the back side of a sculpture!" But the view continued to intrigue me until I said, "Why not?"

You have succeeded Marilyn in producing special images of very popular places. Having been in this church and having explored Nazareth it is often difficult not to be overwhelmed by all the classics but when one sets one's mind to seeing differently, one can. You are a witness to the central theme here, but in the place of "annunciation".

Christmas Greetings!

Thank you, captmallei and Ian for your Christmas wishes on a most appropriate photo.

This was a view that surprised me. I guess that was appropriate also!

Best wishes, Marilyn
