Photographer's Note

Holy Week (Semana Santa) in Andalucia is an event that literally transforms towns and cities across this region. Processions of elaborately decorated floats with Jesus and Mary statues, groups of pointy-hood wearing Nazarenos (penitents), and shrill brass bands, walk slowly through the streets, from their parish church to the cathedral and back. It is an amazing experience, and a great time to come to Andalucia, but this year the word "suspendido" (canceled) was very often displated on information boards in Malaga, because processions were canceled because of the rain :(
