Every year, come the 10th of Februrary, Valletta is set up and ready for one of the biggest feasts the island knows, the feast of St Paul.
This year, one Maltese photographer has managed to capture the true essence of this beautiful feast, from the carrying of the statue around the gridlocked roads, to the moment the statue is taken back into the church.

Daniel Mifsud told Bay that he enjoys taking candid photos at Maltese Festas because they bring out the traditional Maltese element, which, added to the colours and the enthusiasm that Festas bring, make for awesome pictures every time.
