Vistas of Palm Sunday in Antigua Guatemala

Vistas of Palm Sunday in Antigua Guatemala by Leonel -Nelo- Mijangos

Once again, as in previous years, my dear friend and colleague Leonel [Nelo] Mijangos takes the steering wheel of AntiguaDailyPhoto during Semana Santa (Holy Week) to share with us his amazing and unique imagery of the most special celebration in Antigua Guatemala. This year Nelo has decided that the main running and connecting theme will be the photographers of the Semana Santa, so the main photo will always be a photographer, often another friend from Club Fotográfico de Antigua, plus other stamps of the Holy Week in Antigua Guatemala.

Today’s main photograph is wonderful portrait of our friend Willy and a very good representation of the two passions many us share at Antigua Guatemala’s Photo Club. By the way, if you’re in Antigua Guatemala now or will be within the next four weeks, stop by the Casa del Turista, Antigua’s tourist information board, to look at the Gente y Tradiciones de Semana Santa photo exhibit organized by the photo club members where you will find large format photographs by Willy, Nelo, mime and other photographer friends.

Please, let’s show Nelo our gratitude through comments and feedback as token of our appreciation for always sharing with us his amazing and unrivaled Holy Week images.
