Devotees lift a semi-naked infant close to the simulacrum of Santa Maria Addolorata during a religious festival in Palazzolo Acreide, in the Siracusa province in South Eastern Sicily. The act of lifting a child towards the simulacrum of a Saint for good fortune and protection from the Saint, is common practice in patron saints' festivals in South Eastern Sicily. Parents usually also offer money to have their children lifted.

The mood of the Oeste is a series of blog entries where I share some of the photos I shoot in the regiao Oeste, in central Portugal. When I'm in Portugal I'm based here, and I've been coming to this region many times, both for long and short stays, during the last few years.
