Walking with God

Walking with God  by Zach Olson

As this priest walked through the streets of Antigua you could see him praying as he went. It was a refreshing feeling to see a man of faith do this loving action. It is harder and harder to find people who are truly genuine in their faith in our society today.

    It’s also not very often that one sees a cleric in robe walking the streets here.  Very interesting photo!

    A emotionally evocative street portrait… I like it a lot!

    You snapped just at the right moment to get that color avoid above his head.  Kind of like a halo.

    I find this photo to be both tranquil and moving at the same time. 

    I shared it on Facebook, which made me think back to a black and white photo you had a couple of years ago of a monk (priest? brother?) who was dancing across the cobblestones. I wanted to share it as a contrasting image, but I can’t seem to find it. (Your site has so many photos now it’s hard to find specific ones sometimes if you don’t know quite the right search word to use — I’m not complaining; it’s a good problem to have.) Can you point me in the right direction? Gracias!
