Salida de Romeria, Antequera


When I came to Andalucia, I was warned that people are religious here. I was lucky enough to see and photograph the processions and preparations of Semana Santa, Children’s Semana Semana. Now when I hear the drums outside the window, I know Patron responsible for water, health or other vital things goes through the city. Participants of the procesiones - from the smallest participant to the eldest and smiling, talking, kissing with the audience and with each other. Orally, people glow. No sad faces or hymns from prayer books. I was trying to see where the divinity is all over it? In this colorful procession, I saw it in each and every one of participant.
