Ring Around the Padre?

While clicking through "Pinterest" (my latest obsession and procrastination haven), I came across this photograph:

I don't know what it was about this photograph that struck me as awesome. My boyfriend was a film major in college, so maybe I have come to appreciate the struggle a photographer goes through to find the perfect shot. Or maybe I just loved it because I imagined the priests living the message behind Matthew 18:2:

Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.- Matthew 18:2
...Or maybe it was the idea of priests playing a game of "Ring Around the Rosy." Whatever it was, it prompted me to do a quick search and I found some more pretty awesome images by Mario Giacomelli (1925-2000). This particular photograph is part of his "Pretini" ("Little Priest") series. I am still in the process of reading up on Mario Giacomelli's life and works...but I like his work already. I am especially impressed by the fact that Giacomelli was a self-taught photographer. Check out more of his stuff here!

Pax Vobiscum

Oh, okay...just because I can't help myself...more photographs!
 I do this with my little cousins when I see them on the holidays.
They love the blanket swing game probably more than they do the DS!

Just look at that smile!!!
