Mix of blue, white and yellow, colors of Vatican¨s and Argentine´s flags
Today I decided to go for watching what was going on at the cathedral of Buenos Aires and environs, being tomorrow the main ceremony when Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio from Argentina will become Pope Francisco, first american, Spanish speaking pope
All the site was invaded …by photographers,tourists and just people from Buenos Aires, all the columns for electrical wires were with flags from Argentina and the Vatican as happens in other public buildings along with houses and flats
I look up and saw them both happily waving together at the top of a column,let’s hope the new Pope brings peace and care for poor people in a humbled way, as he seems to be
At the back is part of the building (French architecture) of the Buenos Aires ´s government, also with the same flags

I enjoyed very much reading the heartfelt essay accompanying this lovely shot. The earthy colors of the stone help to set off the brilliant colors of the flag and other banners.

Hola Maria !!!
Nice to see the heavens "hope" under the sky, so the flags correspond respectively in the tone. Wish we will enjoy the pontificate along the Catholic Church recognition and return to the pre-Vatican II Council age, so badly needed and awaited by the true worshippers of the traditionally led faith. Thanks for sharing !

Reaching upwards and plays with the eyes! Great shapes and lines, you have done well to isolate an interesting composition and truly something awesome. Lovely angle, the low perspective and some strking colour to finish off nicely. Great ideas and approach, Well done.

Muy bonita imagen, que es un buen homenaje a la llegada de este nuevo Papa, al sillon del Vaticano, parece un hombre muy cercano y sencillo, algo que le puede venir muy bien a la iglesia, ademas para nosotros es una doble alegria, que su lengua del dia a dia haya sido el castellano.
La imagen es un contrapicado fantastico, me gusta...
Pasa un buen dia.

Should be very important fact about your country that elected Pope from Argentina. This composition has a lot of power and hope. The light is excellent also the pov.
Have a nice evening,

interesante composición celebrando la elección del nuevo Papa, un compatriota que ha hecho feliz a toda Argentina.
Tu encuadre y el contrapicado de la columna estriada con las luces y las banderas, que lleva nuestra mirada hacia el cielo azul y las nubes, es una bonita alegoría a la esperanza que ponemos en el nuevo pontificado.
Buen trabajo con la luz y los colores.

I love the perspective of this image. The flag pole reaching into the sky. The Clouds make it seem like the pole is a torch with flame burning on top with smoke coming out of it.
Love the cheerful color and atmosphere. Very Good shot and the combination of colors works beautifully together.

I am sure the new Pope will be beneficial for Argentina. I remember when Polish Pope was selected a while ago. It gave us a lot of self confidence and plenty of people around the world started to ask: where is this country?
His first moves are very promising, he is actually already not liked by Polish bishops who are rich and like to be driven in the most expensive cars.
All Argentinians I know are good people so I am sure he will bring a lot of good to the world regardless if someone is Catholic or not.
Well captured the moment there. Good idea to document and share it.

You have captured this pole from interesting angle. The wind on the flags and the sky with beautiful white cloud is pleasing in the frame.

Un bel effet de perspective avec cette vue en contre plongée, belles teintes et dynamisme avec ces drapeaux flottant au vent.

A fine pic. view upwards and combined the flags and lamp, against the blue sky aloft.
The Pop seem to be a enlightened and broad-minded person, heard him talking while was in Isreal, and was delighted. Also, he likes football...
