Weekly Photo Challenge: ENTRANCE

Still in San Miguel de Allende, another entrance:

On Palm Sunday, Jesus entering “Jerusalem” on his donkey, solemnly processing through the crowded streets of San Miguel. In this devout city, Easter Week is filled with celebrations solemn and joyous, stark and black or radiant with color, silent or ringing with bells and chants, and punctuating it all, fireworks by night and day, and the barking of dogs. There’s so much to take in — (and the photographer taking in this particular scene isn’t me at all — it’s my husband, who loves faces, and photographing them).

Faces in the crowd watching the entrance, also photographed by Frank:

      The only original aspect of mine in it is connecting it to entrance —
      I plumb forgot to give the credit to the photographer — my husband! He loves to photograph people, something I almost never do, and he does it with real sensitivity and feeling. Thanks for your comment, Susan, and for your visit.
      Now I better go back in there and give credit where credit is due! *blush*

      Easter is a whole week-long celebration in San Miguel, and filled with color, sights, sounds, very very special.
      Thanks so much for stopping by, Mizz. I really appreciate it!
