Awesomest Image du Jour CXVI


This is what candles and a long exposure can do for you!  It was taken yesterday in Brasilia, Brazil, during a processional observance of the Christian feast day of Corpus Christi.  The illuminated building in the background is Oscar Niemeyer's 1958 Catherdral of Brasilia.
