Reflections in the Priest

In 2021 I was visiting and photographing a priest near from my home. His name is Don Manuel, he is 93 years old and has been it his entire life. Don Manuel says that he wants to go to finish his life in his born town but actually he never goes. He is used to say that the Church doesn't send other priest so he cannot leave. He showed me almost his whole home talking me about some stories and wishes of his life. When we were in the terrace I saw that the blinds were reflected in his glasses and I looked for the exact angle to "stick his head in the window" and capture the reflection.
