Photographer's Note

Since there is no category "Angels" in the "Genre" field, I have to make do with the "People" one. I just wanted to upload something unlike yesterday's sleazy Santa Claus for this Christmas. Something spiritual, or whatever I may find that had a spiritual significance for me. This boy, whom I had never seen before or since that fleeting moment, does. He was accompanying his mother to a cafe one spring Sunday. When I saw him, his kind, gentle features, a host of Renaissance depictions of angels came to mind. He was at quite a distance from me yet didn't seem to mind that I pulled out my camera; when I smiled and pointed to my Nikon, questioning him silently, he didn't move, he just smiled back.

He was just a boy. But to me, he was an angel, an emissary of light with a message not to fear.

"... they were terrified. But the Angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.'"
(from the Gospel according to Luke)

Wishing you all, dear friends, beautiful holidays--Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, or whatever you may celebrate; to me, it is Christmas. May we all find peace within, the peace of which we are made.
