High above the town at the edge of the city's great park with some fine examples of the cloudforest vegetation you will find the church of Calvario, a white washed typical Guatemalan church. On the square you can find the best of weaver birds that you can see in the corner right above.
The quality of the image - that I took with my fist digital camera (a Ricoh)- is not optimal but it's the first upload of this fine place of a city that is not often shown here.

Bonjour, cher Gerrit,
Voilà une "Papagolfade" de premier ordre !j'aime l'ambiance qui se dégage de cette composition. L'architecture simple mais d'une réelle beauté et ces murs blancs écrasés de soleil.
Un très beau jeu d'ombre et de lumière.

A nice combination of architecture and daily life. The point of view is fine and I like the light and shadow play across the façade. Not an easy situation to manage light wise, resulting in some slight over-exposure in parts but nothing to spoil our enjoyment of the overall composition.

uma simpática igrejinha essa mesmo, e gostei também dessas barraquinhas na porta, bem parecido com o Brasil. Bela foto.
Parabéns e Abraço

A fantastic game of light and shades on the white architecture of the church, which contrasts with the greenery of the trees and the blue sky.
It is a nice Papagolfade, my friend.

I like the the dappled light & shadow play across the front of the old Spanish styled church. Good framing & sharpness. Tfs!

Marvelous this white church.The shades in the wall make a nice effect in the photo.As said Lucas, these stalls beside it, look likes a Brazilian daily life.
