watching

... this is an elderly priest from our village looking at the children in the playing field from his old balcony

i took this shot without him noticing - here is the one shot he allowed me to take once he'd spotted me - http://365project.org/gozoinklings/melting-pot-of/2013-05-25
Awesome....you gotta love Gozo!

What a wonderful image, the angle of the shot, the symmetry of the windows, the lovely tone of blue and then the priest looking at something we can only image, really lovely Cathie, a fav from me.

I really like this, Its like a painting. I wonder what he's thinking!
May 25th, 2013  
I like this one more. It seems to have a better story behind it.
May 25th, 2013

Great how his face is in the open part of the window. I came to Malta/Gozo twenty years ago and loved it. Must come again!
May 26th, 2013  
Well spotted like the way you captured this
May 26th, 2013  
wow....love the louvered windows and his profile as he gazes out unnoticed. it really does have a hidden story to it :)

@christinalee @pflaume thanks so much for the favs ladies - when i saw him i was holding my breath to get just one shot before he noticed me!

@jo13 thanks for the fav jo :o) it is a lovely house - even the details i can see inside with clothes pegs, bird cage, lace curtains scream gozo old-style & he is a bit of a rarity - am afraid i took advantage of him but he's a priest so should be well defended!
