Here's something worth checking out. Canadian visual artist Melinda Mollineaux shot the Camino using "pinhole" cameras. Some of the results are really striking, especially the black and whites, which have a sort of ghostly quality to them (because of the extended exposure time, the photos record movement as a blur). At the end of the Camino, in the Plaza del Obradoiro in front of the Cathedral, she photographed pilgrims' feet. In her own words,

“These photos were very special to take; they were like prayers as I knelt in front of each person, with a kind of joy, waiting as the light reflected off their feet into my camera. I spent those few seconds in awe of the fullness of a life’s journey in each person — beautiful, tired and radiant — in front of me. If only we could daily approach everyone we meet like that.”

The photos were displayed in Ottawa this month and many of them can be seen on her whimsically named blog, "Beauty is really good." Look for the "Small is Beautiful" slideshow on her homepage.
