This photo is of a local man caught up in the moment during the Feast of the Immaculate Conception in Cospicua, Malta. It's the most important festival of the year in this village,this photo encapsulates all that it is about - both faith (praising the Virgin Mary) and community - the whole village turns out, bands play, the villagers march,sing, pray (& drink!), in the evening the gold statue of Mary is paraded through the town, starting and finishing at the Church which shines like a beacon
