Unusual, the subject for the Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post, was set for us this week by Lignum Draco whose photography I have long admired.

Seated on bales of straw in the front row of the audience was a nun with a group of enthusiastic young children. Next to the colorful array of costumes worn by the performers and the summery outfits of the other members of the audience, the austerity of her habit stood out, making her rather an unusual sight amongst all the traditional finery.
