Details of Father Anthony’s latest trip to Rome was posted here on October 26. His 9-day trip started on November 4, 2011.
As promised he sent me 13 pictures this morning. He included this short message: “I thought that you might like to see a few of the photos I took in Rome last week. I was especially pleased to be able to get some real close-up shots of the Holy Father at the audience on Wednesday. As you can see we were blessed with wonderful weather for November.” [I think that this was Wednesday, November 9, 2011.]
Here are five pictures of the pope. The copyright of these pictures do belong to Father Anthony though he is usually more than happy to let others use them — but, if you do, PLEASE attribute them to him, at least as ‘Father Anthony, U.K.‘ [I cropped the first picture slightly to take out the shoulder of a person blocking the image. Father Anthony's identity is not a secret, and his name appears thrice in 'The Next Pope 2011' book since the cover photo is also by him. Also compare the closeup of the pope with the image used by Benetton re. my remarks that the skin on the Benetton model was nowhere close to that of the pope.]
