The church was mobbed, as it is every Good Friday. Worshipers and penitents and supplicants filled the grounds, some having walked the 35 miles from Santa Fe, many more, the 10 miles from Nambe. I did get a few shots with a representation of the human activity, but they weren’t satisfactory to me. My photo buddies tell me this is my best shot of the group and a good photo. I am grateful for their praise, but disappointed I did not do a better job of capturing the human stories that were so bountiful this day. Next year, I vow to devote the whole of Good Friday to this effort. By spending the day there, I hope to reach a level of immersion that will permit a more intimate perspective.
The Santuiario de Chimayo is located 35 miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico.
