Anyway: after a crash course on camera shooting, I'm back as well.
As the Prime Minister said, the Basilica is a beautiful place dedicated to Our Lady of the World, where all sorts of shines are devoted to Mary as certain countries honor her. Here's a shot of Our Lady of Portugal using framing (looking for frames within frames can make for great pictures--see? Here's one already):

Alright, fine, so maybe the first one's head is flat, the second one doesn't have a nose and the third one isn't even the same material, but still...
Well, I'll be back sometime before Easter!
