Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

by alleluiafotos

I approached this week’s challenge from a different perspective.  My photos portray a life that I believe is foreign to many, if not most, of us ~ the cloistered life.  The challenge mentioned how foreign “can also apply to things outside of or different from your normal environment”.  Life in this Dominican Monastery is very different from my own everyday environment.  A friend and I were on retreat for the weekend and I was given permission to take some photos of the nuns at prayer.  A group of friends and I have been going to this monastery for more than 10 years!  If you’re a praying person I would ask that you remember this cloistered Dominican community in your prayers this week.  Thank you.
