Iglesia de la Merced in Black and White

Iglesia de la Merced in Black and White by Rudy Giron

Since one of the goals of AntiguaDailyPhoto is to bring you new fresh vistas from the same hackneyed places I have decided to do a series of black and white photographs of the most emblematic churches in and around Antigua Guatemala. Today’s is an example of a new perspective for the overly-exposed Iglesia de La Merced, quite possibly Antigua Guatemala’s most photographed church.

Even I have already shown you the façade, the dome, the atrium, the main doorway, the baroque details of Iglesia de La Merced. I have tried not to show you the most obvious places and the most often photographed sites unless I can bring a new fresh vista or a different angle. Remember, this is not a tourist-oriented site (well, at least I try not to make it one).

Have I succeeded, please, let me know your thoughts?

    I say LAGDP is a huge success, Rudy. It’s not a tourist-oriented site; it’s a site about daily life in La Antigua, that just happens to have occasional helpful tips for visitors. Oh, and the black and white churches series (already in progress) is stunningly beautiful. Sigue, por favor!

    • Thanks Eric, I am glad some of you like the black and white church series.
