Photographer's Note

Of course this is a posed photo (the priests must pose like this for tourists many times a day), but I think this is my favourite 'priest shot' that I took in Lalibela. I think it's the solemn dignity of the man, and that magnificent cross of course.
I still shoot a lot of film, but this is the kind of shot that would have been more or less impossible to take with film - ISO 12800 with a fast lens and no flash! It certainly gets dark in those cave churches.
