….this is not a set up shot !
i was fortunately shooting with an official pass, so, i was sitting on some steps below His Holiness…..for the hour before, i had been shooting, and, watching his reaction as i got closer…some dancers had begun performing in the area in front of me, so i just sat quietly and nondescriptly at the base of the steps below where the guests were seated….

    wonderful portrait.

  • thanks Roz, very fortunate to get this, as His Holiness tends to avoid the lens, but we have been friends for a while, and he likes what I shoot, thanks for the visit, looks like you enjoyed the stop :-)
