a word-a-week photo challenge: watch

amidst the splendor and glory of st peter’s basilica, it is hard to miss the brighly-garbed swiss guards, which according to wikipedia, is a small force responsible for the safety of the pope including the security of the apostolic palace. their uniform, colorful and distinctly renaissance in style, is enough to draw attention. they are often photographed by many.

my entry to Sue’s a word-a-week-photo challenge: a swiss guard on watch inside st. peter’s basilica, vatican city.
