Since it’s September 8, I thought it would be fitting to finally post this photo here.
This photo was one of my two entries for the Canon Photomarathon 2013 Visayas Leg (although what were submitted for the contest were unedited copies since it was an on-the-spot photo contest). For the theme “Emotion, Passion, Structure”, I originally thought of a photograph of the statue of St. Ignatius of Loyola but the statue of Mother Mary holding the child Jesus worked better for me. This composition is the best I could come up with for the theme given the limited time frame.
This will probably stay as one of my favorite photos for quite a while.
