many miles to go
as evening shadows lengthen—
pilgrims know the way

  1. Unusual angle – had to do a doubletake!

    Superb bright colors and interesting shadows.

  2. Great shot from the top.

  3. Such unyielding straight shadows from the nuns and yet soft welcoming shadows in front of them … complex contrasts, just like life ?
    Joy : )

  4. Lovely haiku ~ definitely an honor to be a ‘pilgrim’ ~ thanks, xxx

    carol and artmusedog

  5. Beautiful post!
    Have a good week ahead!

  6. This was a very unusual position taking a photo from above.

      I thought it wouldn’t be polite to aim my camera at them head-on, but who could object to being “shot” from above? 😉

  7. Me again!

    Thanks for the comment – glad you spotted the tiny fly but the shadows for SSSunday are actually in the *other* shots!!

    Thanks for hosting these memes.

      Oh, I hope you don’t think I was being critical or sarcastic. I was just enjoying your photo in my own quirky way!

  8. a magical shot – great angle

  9. I love this angle and the mystery the shot holds.

  10. With determination, the nuns are awaiting the next part of their journey in spreading the word…

  11. Such an interesting perspective here ~ like being in Heaven and looking down upon these nuns

  12. such an unusual photo looking down- I like this alot!

  13. So love how the soft shadows seem to be creeping toward the sharper shadows of the nuns. Delightful perspective.

  14. Beautiful angle – I thought of the photo of Nuns sitting at an outdoor bar, where their lower halves looked like show girl legs… because that’s what the legs of the chairs were painted to look like.

    While on journeys we need to enjoy ourselves too.

    Kaeru and I have been on a journey for a long time… (I collect frogs…) And I suspect we will be together for life. Besides endings are just new beginnings. Especially when you are having fun 🙂

    Thank you for your visit to CD 401 @ ‘B’ ~Jules

  15. I miss seeing the nuns dressed in habits such as this. The first time I saw one of the nuns with him I’d taught in her new habit I did not recognize her at first! interesting perspective of these pilgrims!

  16. Have a nice weekend and a blessed week to come, Maam MT…

  17. What great shot – very intriguing perspective! Love the haiku as well.

  18. Beautiful. I love the perspective of this shot.

  19. that´s a different angle 🙂
