Here is my entry from the Cathedrale Saint-Pierre in the heart of the city of Saintes, near La Rochelle, France. No flash was allowed in the church and the lighting was quite dark. In order to get the full impact of the stained glass window, I had to black out the rest of the wall of the church.
Here is the plaque posted by the front entrance:

Nothing beats the gut reaction to seeing a shark fin crest in the water in front of you. I was lucky to capture this image while ‘down-under’ in late 2015.

Here is my entry for the week.
This is a weekly challenge sponsored by Nancy Merrill Photography.
Here is a picture taken in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico of school children participating in a spontaneous march for joy down one of the many cobbled streets. Their bodies were
densely packed together and the strung out for almost two blocks.
When several of the students saw me taking photographs, the halted the march and posed for the camera. You have to admit that they are densely packed together for this shot.
I find the greatest moments of solitude when I am near, in, or under the ocean. This is especially true in the tropics. Today’s pictures are from Amadee Island in the French protectorate of New Caledonia.
Birds in flight, especially when they are gliding on the wind currents, are very graceful. For today’s challenge, I went back to our trip to the Gannet colony in at Cape Kidnappers in New Zealand to select the most graceful shot of these beautiful birds in flight.
