Photographer's Note

Three photos (a main one and two in Workshops) of interior of Georgian churches. The Georgians are very religious. The taxi and marshrutka's drivers seeing the cross or church on the road, made the sign of the cross three times, in Orthodox manner, and often kissed a holly picture. In the church there are no sits, all the people are standing that can be tiring for elderly. Women must have a scarf on the head. I love the magical atmosphere of the Orthodox churches, with the view and smell of the slim candles and solemn feeling. In monasteries usually the photos were not allowed, it the churches it was possible to make them but not easy as the interiors were often dark.
Pity that in the last moment someone came before my camera, but the church was full of people.

I wish you all Happy Easter!!
