Today’s photo is another from the series of Maltese chapels I’m working on. This is actually the second chapel I visited on Good Friday earlier this year, after the one in Wied Speranza. I must have passed by this chapel so many times, as it’s on the way from Mosta to a cross-roads leading to Mġarr, Rabat / Dingli, or Tarġa Gap. On that Good Friday I finally took a close look. I found that the chapel is still in use, with weekly mass on Saturday evenings.
I parked near a farm, making sure I wasn’t blocking any access, and walked a bit to scope out the place. In the end I set up near where I parked, on the side of the bridge to keep the chapel in full view. Again I went for a long exposure here, to soften the shadows a bit and get some movement in the sky.
I’m finding the process of taking photos of these small chapels to be a fascinating way to explore my country. There are so very many of them, and often still in regular (if at times infrequent) use. In some cases getting a decent photo is challenging because of everything around them. I guess in such places I’ll need to be a bit more creative.
