Altar Inside San Pedro Las Huertas Church

Altar Inside San Pedro Las Huertas Church

Today’s photograph is dedicated to those friends that have pointed out that in over 427 days I have taken over 34 photos of atriums and churches, but not a single photo from the inside of a church. Let me tell you, it was not easy, but I decided to just walk in and take a few shots. So there, see I can also take photographs from inside the churches. Here is another close-up view of the altar of San Pedro Las Huertas Church without people. I hope you are not put off by religious motifs.

Ego boosting side note update: Today was published an interview made to me for the Faces magazine, a Spanish-language magazine, which is part of the Siglo XXI, one of the largest newspapers in Guatemala. The interview is in Spanish, so you may not understand but a few words, unless you can read Spanish; I had to share it with you guys anyway. The Faces magazine does not have a web site, so I had to scan the page where the interview appeared.

  • Enchanting shot. The candlelight and general atmosphere is inviting and mysterious.

    It’s really interesting our churches here are so modern, and so less elaborate that we have to just imagine the angels at our alter adoring the Christ Jesus. And our elderly parish priest wonders why people at our church don’t have any respect at the altar. Well, if our altar looked like this one, I think they would have no choice. *The purpose of religious icons are not to be a point of worship, but a point of remembrance.

    I just saw your pictures for the first time – just lovely. However, I have a favor/question to ask of you. My husband and I were in Antigua last October, staying at la Pasada de los Leones near the outskirts of town (Calle de los Duelos). There was a furniture store near there (also near the highway entrance to the city (antiques primarily – an old warehous-type store) that I want desperately to find again, maybe around Calle Oriente, but I’m not sure. Do you know what I’m talking about? Cheri

  • I have never seen a church like this before – thank you for taking the risk of photographing it! I picked your pic as one of my top three favorites for the day on my daily photo site

  • Felicitaciones, vos, por la entrevista de hoy. Saludos.

    Beautiful altar. Thanks for sharing. Also, congrats on the “Faces” magazine.

  • wow….simply wow!

  • Congrats on the interview too Rudy. I think you got your point across over the plagiarism very well and, in the right medium.

  • Pedp, this is a very difficult shot because of the low light conditions. I am glad the atmosphere came through.

    Abe, thanks for your continue visits and comments.

    JW, well, to be fair (no pun intended), remember this is the town’s fair so they have to look their best.

    Cheri, there are so many furniture stores around the area, I am lost, and calle oriente are all the streets on the east side of town.

    Melina, I was not risking anything. Mostly I do not go inside churches of any kind, that is all.

    Luis, gracias y que rápido se ha enterado.

    ColtraneLives, thanks for all your feedback.

    Slinger, wow, that is what I thought when I saw I was able to capture the altar with such low light conditions —and without a tripod.

    Pamela, I guess you are just about the only one who can read the article. I want to thank you all your support throughout this past year. But I also want to let you know, I am still waiting for those garrafones. 😉
