Palm Sunday 2012

This year I was away from town for Holy Week.  I was on the tenth Pakaraima Mountain Safari, and although I have not yet sorted all my photos from the trip, nor written any sort of account, I did choose this image for Palm Sunday to share.

It was taken at “58 Mile”, an area known for being 58 miles out of Linden, and for the “pit stop” establishment there know as “Peter and Ruth”, anyone heading to Lethem, or Kurupukari, or Mahdia usually stops here.

The photo is not of Peter & Ruth’s establishment, but of a little church opposite  :-)

Co-incidentally I was back in this spot on Good Friday at 3pm (most Catholics will know the significance of that) :-)

So, although I got a lot of flak for not covering the Palm Sunday Mass (it seems there are some who look forward to my photos from that), I did manage a fairly nice shot that day anyway  :-)

Please click on the image to see it larger in the Gallery.

  1. When something becomes a tradition it is hard to not disappoint people looking forward to the regular observances, even if it is just taking photos :) Maybe you should have done the Palm Sunday thing and then taken a plane ride into Karasabai.

  2. Nice replacement. Nice story. Did miss the pictures. Do the three stones represent Calvary with Jesus and the two who were crucified with him? :-)

  3. Hello Michael
    As the saying goes. “A picture is worth a thousand words” Love it, foreground, background, subject and all.
