Holy Week

The holy week is celebrate around the world for believer of Christian's religion. I've been whole my life attending to this interesting tradition but at this moment I'm not in my hometown where I was born. So, I asked myself What am I going to do? Am I going to lost my own roots? or Am I going to stay in home and do nothing about it? Instead, last week I decided to take my camera, lens and my own faith and going out site. I was treating to shoot something about the Holy Week in the City of Angels in California, USA and this was what I found.
