Saint-Roch is patron saint of the town of Montpellier

Saint-Roch was born in street of "la Loge" in Montpellier between 1348 and 1350 in a very Christian family of a father which became the first consul of Montpellier in 1363 and of a mother lombarde. In a tumultuous context, of one hundred year old war, Great Black Death which lasted two years and decimated 1/3 of the Western population while killing to 500 people per day in Montpellier, great famines and devastations perpetrated by the large companies of mercenaries left without resources, it was informed by the Dominican ones and made studies of medicine. Orphan with 17 years and rich person, it decided to distribute his fortune to poor people. Left for Italy in 1367, it attended to plague around Rome until 1371, caught to him even the disease, escaped from death helped by an angel. Arrested by Bernardo Visconti Duke of Milan then in war against the Pope Urbain V, for supposed espionage, it was imprisoned in 1375 and died in the dungeon between 1378 and 1380. Saint-Roch is a saint honoured in all the occident, owner of brotherhoods, of corporations, guards of the animals and the plants.

Hello Joel! Wonderful St. Roch! Wonderful sculpture. Good lightness and brightness. Very good sharp. Original picture. Good luck!

Hello Joël,
A beautiful capture of this statue under a soft pink light. The light in general is also very well managed and the clarity perfect to show us the least detail in the carving. Very good work.

Bonjour Joel,

Tu as magnifiquement saisi cet effet de la lumière à travers les vitraux ce qui transforme une photo qui aurait pu être banale en une ilmage très originale. Bine vu et bine réalisé.
Amitiés,
Roger

Bonjour Joël

C'était la techno parade à Montpellier aussi ?!
Superbe jeu de lumières, magnifiquement saisi. Je me souviens que la cathédrale Saint-Pierre se prête beaucoup à de belles illuminations.
La qualité d'image est impeccable, et le cadrage sur Saint-Roch très efficace. J'aime beaucoup comment tu as fixé son expression.
Beau travail.

Amicalement,
Karine

Bonjour Joel
Pas besoin de projecteurs pour donner de l'éclairage à la statue,le vitrail a fait son boulot et le cliché est bien exposé.
Bonne journée à toi
Amicalement

bonsoir Joël
cette statue est magnifiée par l'extraordinaire lumière qui filtre à travers les vitraux,je trouve ça splendide!J'aime la texture du tissu,il semble si soyeux qu'on n'a plus l'impression qu'il s'agit d'une sculpture!Très belle photo!

Hi Joel,
A photo is beautiful. Not only because of the sculpture, but because of the ethereal lights. Entirely special this mood, as if we would be the eyewitnesses of a heavenly apparition. The composition superb, the quality of the picture with a first class. Congratulations. Have a nice evening

Hello Joël,

L'effet des rayons au-travers de vitraux est mangigique, superbe , des couleurs très douces, et un captage de bas en haut, qui met merveilleusement en valeur le Saint.

Bravo et amitié

Nicou

Bonjour Joel,
Belle complicité du vitrail et de la lumière, qui habillent ici de façon étonnante, cette statue.
Si ce n'était St-Roch, on pourrait presqu'imaginer une vision des "ballets roses"... :o)
Un joli détournement, un superbe coup d'oeil !
Amitiés, Gilles

Bonjour Joël.
Merci pour la note très fournie sur ce saint et pour la photo de sa statue colorée par la lumière du vitrail.
J'aime le cadrage et le piqué de ce cliché.
Amicalement,
Jacques
