My Angel

Location: N/A

By: Julia Ardon

While visting Cartago, Costa Rica around the 6th of August I was visiting the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles for the first time in my life. I was taking pictures by the image outside the church, where the water is running and I took several pictures. One of the pictures doubled or even triple imaged and I almost deleted it, but decided to see how bad it was when I noticed something in the photo. I decided to enlarge it on my camera and there is an image of a face and upper body that is not a duplicate of any image in the photo, when I enlarged it even further on my computer it is definately an image. I call her my little special gift from God.
