Photographer's Note

Well, I fifnished with the "cementaries' series but since today is the day that brought the idea in the first place - All Saints' Day, I decided to post something as an "epilogue"- the simplest and most obvious one on the day - a burning candle.
For those to whom it's not that obvious-All Saints Day is a universal Christian Feast that honors and remembers all Christian saints, known and unknown. But for an ordinary Christian the feast is associated more with remembering their late family and friends, and for this reason we visit cementaries and light candles on the graves of our relatives. Fire as a symbol of life.

I could have lied and written the candles are Polish ones:-) but what's the point? I took this shot in St. George's Church, a Greek Orthodox Church in Madaba,
known for its 6th century mosaic that represents the biblical land from Egypt to Lebanon, including Sinai, Israel, Palestine, and Transjordan, believed to be one of the best topographical representations of the Biblical Lands. For those who are interested I'm uploading a photo of the map in Workshop, just as a curiosity as my photos didn't come out that well.
