Enactment of the Guatemalan Nativity Scene

Rudy Giron: AntiguaDailyPhoto.com &emdash; Viajera colombiana con el Nacimiento

The other day I had the opportunity to make a couple of photos of the Nativity scene enactment or Nacimiento as people call them in Antigua Guatemala. If you don’t know what Nacimientos are, read on what I published at Nacimiento Shrine Niche at Capilla de Belén.

By the way, the girl in the middle is a Colombian tourist visiting and excited to see what she calls pesebres, even her mom was delighted ask me to take a picture of her daughter with the nacimiento.

One last thing, I am considering ceasing the daily updates of AntiguaDailyPhoto on December 31, 2013. I feel I have covered just about everything I can think of in the nearly eight years of daily updates. If you feel I should continue, let me know why.

    I think the right word is ” considering” je je. Nice try Rudy, trying to sneak the news on the last paragraph of your entry. As always, my suggestions include getting your readers to get more involved in the process. How about readers suggesting themes to be covered? I know that I would like to see more Volcano pics, specially those taken from the Volcano looking down on the nearby towns. I also would like more shots about young Antigueños and the things they are interested in.
    Perhaps you can transfer the reigns of ADP to a young and up and coming Guatemalan photographer chosen from the many Photo Groups that you are part of? Just saying……

    I know you must be tired after 8 years. For me it is a way I can continue to be in touch with a city I love. I also love the different series you do and the customs which I would not have a way of knowing about in my 2 week annual visit. YOu help me understand the culture and in a visual way which is more how I approach the world. I selfishly do not wish you to stop.
