Photographer's Note

New POPE: Benedict XVI - Joseph Ratzinger.

I was incredibly lucky to shoot this, kind of paparazzi photo, when I was in Rome to participate in funeral mess of the last pope. Late afternoon after the ceremony when I was walking along walls of Vatican, I suddenly saw through the gate that leads to this small country, cardinal Joseph Ratzinger who was talking with some guys. I changed the lens immadiately as he was about 200 hundred meters away in the place that no civilian can reach. After few seconds he was gone...


This image is not very TE like but I just wanted to share it with you in this extraordinary moment.
