A bit of miracle

March 2013, St. Peter's Square in Rome, it is ongoing the conclave for the election of the new pope. It's raining since early afternoon and the square is full of people. There is any sort of pilgrims kneeling, others barefoot, groups from all over the world, flags and banners around.

Everybody is waiting for the white smoke which is the signal communicating in the outside world the election of the new Pope.

I walk up and down the square several times with my camera when I see the clear face of this young nun emerging from the dark umbrellas . An interesting scene but I have to shoot from the height above my head to compose the scene as I would. So I raise up my camera above my head with one hand and I bend the swivel screen of my Olympus OMD just enough to be able to see the scene through it, but with the vertical framing it is not easy. The nun stands still enough and the umbrellas too, so I can make four shots trying to adjust each one in a slightly different angle, to get at least a decent shot. One is fine and it is well centered, a little miracle in St. Peter’s square. Soon after it comes the white smoke of the election of the new Pope Francesco.
