Celebrating Independence Day in Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Celebrating Independence Month in Guatemala

This portrait of a Guatemalan man wearing the flag of Guatemala on his face was taken within two feet from him at the most recent photo walk that I lead this morning through the streets of Antigua Guatemala. Boy oh boy, the Parque Central was such a zoo with large crowds from all over Guatemala. Of course, you might not infer this by looking at this very intimate portrait. I shared with the photo enthusiasts attending the photo walk that in Guatemala we celebrate Independence Day, everyday of September. How do people celebrate Independence Day in your neck of the woods?

Here’s a picture of the Independence torch captured by Nelo Mijangos.
