This is one of my all-time favorite photos, taken at the shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe in Mexico City.  I’ve been waiting for the proper chance to use it for a loooooong time.  Now, finally, the perfect prompt!  I love the one young nun turning around to look behind her–the rest blithely marching along–seemingly straight into that wall!

      I have always wondered if young novitiates have some of the same thoughts as other teenagers and what would turn them toward the “habit.” I made friends with a group of older nuns at the beach one year. They were like little kids in the waves. (As was I–ha.)

    I grew up in the Catholic church and went to Catholic school. Nuns were a big part of my life. Many of my teachers were nuns. My great aunt was a nun, and we would visit her a week at a time (staying in the convent guest house and eating in the nun’s common room with them). I knew when I was 10 that I wanted to be a nun.
    Then, when I was 13, I turned my back on God. It wasn’t until I was 30 that I came back to Him.
    Anyhow, I will always have a soft spot in my heart for nuns.

    Judy, this should be published. It’s a tremendous photo with impact–of seriousness, of playfulness, of uniformity and (the one is looking back, probably “felt” your camera behind her) individuality!!!!
