Nice photos of religious traditions in the Philippines.

From Kindergarten to high school, I went to a lot of similar processions but have never seen those large posters.

BTW, I wonder if my hubby and his mom are related to Beata Juana de Aza (I doubt it, heheh).

hey Sydney its good that you are back once again in blogging.

I used to attend the said procession when I was in Manila before and seeing those saints amazes me. They are the only order/parish here in the philippines who has a complete Carozas with images of their respective saints.

Sto. Domingo church is the most powerful and richest parish in Manila. No wonder they have their own carozas. In provinces, carozas and images like those are owned by rich families and is only brought out in the public during lent

I personally think the statues look creepy, too, even though I have seen a lot of these processions before. The statues still freak me out. I even had a nightmare about them before. Great job documenting the event, btw.

I love Pinas b/c of the various festivals they have there. It's really interesting!

Un bon business les images d'Epinal, les offrandes, les indulgences, les rachats de péchés (avec ou sans subprime) ... semble-t'il.

Great candid shots! First time I've seen those placards with saints' pitures, like big stampitas.

This seems to be a huge parade. Very interesting snaps of the Saints.

I don't know why, but those posters of saints kind of scared me.
