Prayer Candles with the marvellous medieval stained glass glistening behind.
I shot this in Canterbury Cathedral in England. I knew the bokeh from the medieval stained glass would be a beautiful addition and add context so it took me a while to find just the right position to include both. While I was setting up the shot, I kept thinking about those flickering prayers. Not belonging to a religion that practices this kind of prayer gave me an opportunity to view it from the outside. I really liked the intentionally of this practice. As though one were concentrating their hopes, fears and pains into one intense burning light with the hope that once the candle was snuffed, resolution could be given.
