Cathedral’s New Look

Cathedral's New Look

Well, it looks like 2009 will be the year of the new paint jobs on all the major churches around Antigua Guatemala prior to the Holy Week celebrations, which, by the way will begin one week from today.

In the photo above, you can see new colors for La Antigua Guatemala’s Cathedral. This is the first time I have seen the Cathedral wearing different colors other than white. As I have stated before, during the Lent season, you see many houses, buildings and churches undergo façade makeover.

This photo was taken early last week and I believe they should be done with the new paint job of the façade of the Catedral de La Antigua Guatemala. I will do a follow up photo to show you the finished new look. Stay tune!

Comments and Feedback Whining Aside: The only way for me know if you like or hate the new photos and captions is through your comments. Please, do not underestimate the power of your comments. Even though sometimes I don’t respond right away, I DO READ every single comment and feedback. Please, leave your comments as often as possible; they are the fuel for new ideas and encouragement to continue with just one more daily page. 🙁

    Interesting shots, Rudy. I wish I could be there for Semana Santa, but not this year … maybe next (?)
    Thanks for the fruit series … forgive me for not commenting, but life is entirely too busy at times. You know I love the food pictures, even if they do make me hungry. Chico zapote es mi fruta favorita. Que delicioso!

  • It’s always extraordinary for me to look at these buildings and realize they were painted just a year ago. It’s not hard to look that them and SEE they’re ancient.

  • gorgeous website! i’m planning on moving to antigua in about 3 months for the particular reasons of what you capture on film!
    thanks:)

    I think this photo is stunning — not so much because of the artistry of the photo itself (although it’s great!) but because of what it represents. Beautiful architecture that is lovingly cared for over the years. What an amazing contrast to the throw-away culture that we’re bombarded with here in the US. (We have our beauty and heritage, too, but it’s not treasured by the populace like this.)

    I have greatly enjoyed checking your site regularly since I discovered it several months ago, and always enjoy your photos. Thank you. And keep up the good work!

    Is the facade being painted or cleaned? I personally like the buildings with a bit of “grime” on them to show their age and character.
