And Thursday night...

I made to one procession yesterday, Holy Thursday: la Hermandad del Cristo del Amor y de la Paz. They crossed the Roman bridge and climbed up the steep cuesta of Tentenecio, the men bearing a paso of Christ, the women María Nuestra Madre.

This is a young Hermandad, founded in 1972. It was the first to admit women as full members and the first to march with the penitent's face visible.

I had light, dark and rain to contend with, so yes, the photo above is proof I in no way consider myself a learned photographer. Still, I liked the shot enough to post it.

  • Keep them photos coming, Erin, in my humble opinion they've excellent.
    And I like the comment about not hurrying in Spain. I was told just the same thing this very morning, "No corres", before the mandatory conversation, at this time of the year, regarding the state of our huertas....

  • These are very nice shots. You needn't make any excuses for them. I have seen bad photography and your shots are certainly not in that category! Keep it up, it's nice to see Spain from a locals perspective.

  • Thank you for these photos. I spent one night in Salamanca many years ago and keep telling myself I must go back. But I have passed Semana Santa many times in a village in Andalucia, and these photos take me back there, too. I'm deeply envious, which is teribly unChristian, but I hope you get as much from Spanish Semana Santas as I do!

  • Hey Daniel, good to see you here! Thanks and thanks, yarbz. That light flash is from the rain, I suspect. I have a camera with powers light years beyond my ability to use them, is what I meant. I'd do far better with a point and shoot if I'm not going to take the time to learn a bit...

    Welcome Payasoru!

  • I like the photos, too, Erin...don't ever stop shooting. I love the little trips I get to take whenever you write about Salamanca and your travels. Thanks
