Artist's Description

Over the Easter weekend, I stumbled upon a ceremony at the Sacred Heart Cathedral in Bendigo while taking some shots. My daughter and I were immediately welcomed, told that this was a Blessing of the Fire and handed candles (even though I had a backpack and camera attached to tripod in hand).

With choir, small congregation and church staff (is that the right expression?), it was a beautiful ceremony to witness. As the congregation filtered into the doorway with their candles, I remembered that I had the remote shutter just hanging there, still plugged in. So, hoping to capture some of the movement with the candles, I switched it on. Over the next 47 seconds this is what it captured – I had to straighten the picture slightly because I was on a bit of an angle…
At that point, my daughter and I thanked one of the church officials and slipped away to drive back to Geelong (about 2 hours away).

Definitely a View Largie!
