Although I was going to photograph the facade of St. Ignatius on Christmas Eve, I was excited when I found this spot by accident. What else could be better than a landmark building and its reflection! All I had to do was just to wait until the perfect timing of the very slim time slot. After the sunset, the building is lit up but the sky must not be pitch black. I could not miss this chance since more rainy days were expected from the next day. And then, a line of crowd came out of the church and walked across the frame. But my patience paid off.
