The Festa dei Ceri (Race of the Candles) in Gubbio, Italy is a tradition dating back to the 12th century. The community commemorates the patron saints of the town with a sacred and mysterious procession in which men of the city carry big wax sticks through the streets towards the Basilica of Mount Ingino. The people who support the heavy ceri (candles) wear colored shirts to represent their respective saint – yellow for St. Ubaldo, blue for St. Giorgio, and black for St. Anthony. 1st & 2nd images: #Gubbio, #Umbria, #Italy, 2014. 3rd image: #Gubbio, #Umbria, #Italy, 2011. 4th image: #Gubbio, #Umbria, #Italy, 2014. at Gubbio, Italy

"Water, like religion and ideology, has the power to move millions of people. Since the very birth of human civilization, people have moved to settle close to it. People move when there is too little of it. People move when there is too much of it. People journey down it. People write, sing and dance about it. People fight over it. And all people, everywhere and every day, need it." – Mikhail Gorbachev. 1st image: Man carries statue of Ganesh, #Bombay, #India, 1993. 2nd image: #AngkorWat Temple, #Cambodia, 1997. 3rd image: The Golden Temple, #Amritsar, #India, 1996.
