Viernes Santo (Good Friday) in Guanajuato State, Mexico: April 15, 2022
With an early start on Good Friday Michael picked us up and we drove toward the small city of Mineral de Santa Ana to photograph their Good Friday procession. Near the city of Dolores Hildago we stopped along the road to watch a small Stations of the Cross Procession. The procession was not led by a priest, and there were no statues carried on flower covered platforms. This was a group of local people carrying wooden crosses. The first station of the cross was a simple table with a bouquet of flowers in front of a nondescript building. A woman in the group read something, presumably from the Easter story, and the group moved on down the road toward the next station.
