Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

I pulled up at work one day last year and turned around and saw this. I really thought it was a dead baby in a skip. You have to understand that I really thought this was possible, because of the location of my office. I couldn’t resist taking some shots of this life sized toddler doll, who, it has to be said, looks pretty serene and looks like he/she is looking up at the stars… It’s still a bit weird though…

As soon as I saw this week’s title I knew the images I would post. These are from the feast day for Saint Alphonsa of Kerala, India. She was the first native woman ┬áto be beatified. We came across these people celebrating her Feast day on the 28th July in Worcester a couple of years ago. It was a very colourful and friendly occasion.
