Antigua Lent Processions: San Bartolo part 2

Antigua Lent Processions: San Bartolo by Leonel -Nelo- Mijangos

Today’s Domingo de Ramos (Palm Sunday) which means we are at the commencement of the world-famous Holy Week in Antigua Guatemala. We carry on our series Antigua Lent Processions thanks to the wonderful imagery of our friend and collaborator Leonel [Nelo] Mijangos who has taken to the task to document every Lent procession in La Antigua Guatemala in the last decade.

As I mentioned a few days ago, Nelo Mijangos goes to the extremes to get new angles and perspectives. Oftentimes he climbs electric poles just to get a bird’s eye view of the processions. For the San Bartolo procession Nelo hopped onto an helicopter to give us never seen aerial shots of a procession in Antigua Guatemala.

Don’t you ever say we don’t go to the extreme to bring you the most unique and exclusive imagery from La Antigua Guatemala. The same rigor and dedication you can expect from XelaDailyPhoto and GuatemalaDailyPhoto. If you have not yet visit the other two daily photo websites from Guatemala, take your time to smell the Guatemalan coffee… and enjoy the vistas from other Guatemalan cities.

  • Great color of purple. They are quite noticeable from afar.

  • @Zakton, that’s a bright purple noticeable from very far away. Thanks for the visit and as soon as I get a chance I will browser your photos from Jakarta.

  • Erick!

    Truly awesome pictures. I had never seen the guys in the red and tall (cone-like) hoods. What are they supposed to be/represent?
