Vittoriosa, Malta

"I like the silent church before the service begins, better than any preaching." Ralph Waldo Emerson
Once again I am posting another picture taken at the St.Lawrence Church in Malta, the church found in my hometown. 

When I took this picture I was totally not planning to take any pictures but as I was walking by I couldn't help but notice the afternoon sun hitting the dome in a way that it was creating the perfect contrast. Add that with the perfect blue sky and the homing pigeons flying around and you'll get what you see here.

In Malta they use limestone as the main building rock and I remember before I took this picture it had rained quite a bit. When it rains limestone, especially really old limestone takes a different texture as you can see in the picture and I think if it hadn't rained this picture wouldn't look as interesting. But either way I am glad I happened to be passing by right when I was.

This black and white photograph was captured on my iPhone using the Hipstamatic app. Some minor editing was done in PS CS4. Settings for Hipstamatic were BlacKeys B&W/Lucifer IV
