Pilgrimage to Italy

In late April I will travel to Italy as part of a pilgrimage sponsored by The Compass. The trip will feature stops in Rome, Venice, Assisi and Florence. If that wasn’t enough to make a photographer shutter, er, shudder, we recently discovered that on the day of our arrival in Rome, May 1, Pope Benedict XVI will oversee the beatification of his predecessor, Pope John Paul II.
So it looks like my plans to spend a quiet day photographing the interior of St. Peter’s Basilica on May 1 or 2 have been interrupted. But like any other photo assignment, you go with the flow and make the most of it. Anyway, it should be a pretty exciting time at the Vatican come May.
Here are a couple of photos from a previous trip to Rome in 2002.
