Photographed inside the entry to the lovely little 16th Century Chapelle Notre-Dame-de-Pitié at Sanary-Sur-Mer
on the coast of France. The walk up to the Chapel provides great views over the beautiful fishing village below.

    This Pietà is slightly different to the Pietà that Michelangelo did but maybe more beautiful. I like how Mary is holding her head up to Heaven and in Michelangelo’s Pietà she is looking down with sorrow to her son.

  • Albert, you are quite right … it is 15 years since I saw Michelangelo’s Pietà, but I still remember the stunning effect of my first sight of his masterpiece. This one is much smaller and thus far I have not been able to discover the sculptor’s name. Both are movingly beautiful.

    Beautifully photographed, Trish. Perfectly lit. I didn’t know there was such a thing as square format. Also an interesting expression on Mary’s face, asking ‘Why?’ She knows the answer to that already.

  • Gary, thank you very much ! I guess knowing the answer wouldn’t have made it any easier for her as a Mother. I had to move some flowers and candles to get the shot I wanted, but of course replaced them after. My camera has 4:3, 3:2, !6:9 and 1:1 options, the slightly annoying thing is when I forget to change back and find I have used the wrong one.
