Let The Processional Season Begin

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; First Lenten Procession from Santa Catalina Bobadilla in front of the Cathedral

This past Sunday the first Lenten procession hit the streets of Antigua Guatemala. Here’s procession from Santa Catalina Bobadilla as it passes in front of the Cathedral around 6:20pm, about an hour later than expected according to the processional route maps that were handed out. Nevertheless, it was better from a photographic perspective as we were able to capture it during the blue hour, after sunset, around the main square buildings.

This was also the first of the Special Lent and Holy Week Photo Walks that I am leading every Sunday of Lent and during Semana Santa. Join me for a very special photo walk every Sunday of Lent, from 2 pm to 6 pm. Don’t miss this once-a-year chance to capture stunning aspects of the traditional processions from the intricacies of carpet building, to the coordination required to carry a wooden float. These special photo walks will get you to the best spots to capture photos that will last a lifetime.
