Heaven and Earth

I walked on the Piazza St. Pietro in Rome. There were a lot of people who moved along the stately building while taking pictures. Everything for their digital records: the St. Peter, the fellow tourists, the statues....I wondered if there would arise some kind of contact between the passers by and the Lord of this church.

So I took some pictures of the photographers. By putting these on the colonnade instead of some of the 140 statues of Saints, suddenly there was a connection between the people on the Square and the bright blue sky above them: a meeting between Heaven and Earth
