Lenten Vistas — Carpets

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Lenten Vistas — Carpets

Here’s your illustrated Guatemalan Spanish word of the day: Alfombras procesionales for processional carpets.

To look at the Lenten processional carpets you actually need to be in front of the procession as carpets are usually finished only minutes before the main float, anda in Spanish, goes by.

Semana Santa is coming up quickly! Treat yourself to an unforgettable photo walk and capture the beauty and action of a procession! We will focus on tips and techniques to get inspired images. Take a look at the gallery from last year, and book your spot now for Holy Week photo walks every day from 2 pm until 6 pm. See photos from last year, and sign-up here: www.AntiguaPhotoWalk.com
