Semana santa

The Semana Santa started in Granada last monday and every day until sunday processions will take place in the evening until late at night. As usual, I make the promise not to miss the Gypsies procession in el Sacromonte and in the end I always miss it....Alas, this year it seems I won't attend any procession as I'm much too busy working on a project. In the meantime, I leave you with pics I took last year of the procession of the cofradia (brotherhood) of Santa Maria church in the Alhambra.

I am so completely jealous. I love semana santa, when I was in Italy I always photographed them. Once in Sicily, it was amazing. These pics are gorgeous. Carla

I was raised as catholic but I have always found these ritual a bit weird.
