Dramatic illumination of El Calvario Church

Dramatic illumination of El Calvario Church by Rudy Giron - <a href="http://www.rudygiron.com" >www.rudygiron.com</a>

We continue our black and white series of the churches in and around Antigua Guatemala. In this occasion, I stopped by El Calvario church at the south end of Antigua Guatemala.

El Calvario or Calvary (Golgotha) is the name of the mount on the outskirts of Jerusalem where it’s believed that Jesus Christ was crucified. This church with its three arches provides a symbolic representation of the crucifixion; with each arch representing each cross.

If you want to see the rich yellow colour of the wall with the white trim against a dark blue sky follow the white rabbit to Entrance to Iglesia El Calvario.

P.S. Make sure you click on the images to view the large version where the details are so much better.

    Wow, Rudy, the black and white photography really creates a fantastic image with the lighting. I love the intense yellows of El Calvario, but this view brings out new qualities to the architecture and lighting. Of course, that WAS your intention, wasn’t it ? Bien hecho !
