Ailsa's travel photo challenge: White

Ailsa proposes a White theme in honour of the International Day of Peace on 21st September.  That’s today.

See her white things here:

Some people, she says, observe a minute’s silence at midday, but that time has already passed for me.  It’s just after two in the afternoon and I’ve just received her email.  Still, I can observe it with my photo of two white figures on the steps of a white church, Le Basilique du Sacré-Cœur, in Paris.  As I stood watching this scene (2 years ago), it was mid-morning mid-week which confused me when I saw the bride.  She posed for so many shots that I wondered if she were modelling.  If she had indeed just been married, then her husband must have been a very patient man.

The other figure that looks like a white statue isn’t.  He’s another very patient man.

  1. Great entry for this week´s Travel Theme, Trish.

    So the item on the plinth is really a human statue? He looks so real I wonder if many people noticed him and gave him anything for his trouble.

  2. Thanks, it is! But it was completely unintentional on my part. I wonder if the statues were doing a white theme because they knew the bride would be posing there…

  3. Thanks. I wasn’t sure on the day whether the man holding the bouquet was a real groom or a model. If he is the husband he’ll need the patience of a human statue if he is to live with that woman till death they do part. For the ten minutes I was watching, he was not included in any photos.

  4. It’s amazing how easy it is to find a photo to match a theme. When I read it was ‘white’ for this week, I thought I had nothing, until I skimmed the files…
