Holy Week at Holy Cross/Hellenic College

I hope everyone will enjoy these pictures I’m posting from Holy Week. I
wasn’t able to add much to the services, so this is my offering for the
week. I’m sure I must have annoyed everyone moving around the chapel and taking flash shots in people’s faces, but I tried hard to take picture that would be memorable, pictures that said something about what was going on. It’s not easy to get a good shot. Photography is becoming a throw away art. Everyone with a cheap phone has a camera and any picture can be touched up in Photoshop. Pictures are often uploaded to Facebook to be glanced at and forgotten. But to make something beautiful takes care and patience. It says a lot about you, the way you see other people.

Photography isn’t my favorite hobby, videography is. (please watch some of my videos from
Taiwan) I filmed a lot of religious ritual in Taiwan, and tried to
apply the same principals toward showing our own rites. I learned this
week that even though a photograph shows less, in freezing a particular
moment you can capture and display a certain action that a video of the
same even would pass over. I’m far from a professional, but I hope
everyone will see something beautiful here.


Note: If you have a little time, just look at the best pictures (122 pics). All the pics are in the full album for Holy Week
(321 pics). These are print-quality. Everyone has my permission to use
any photos that you or your friends or family are in. If you want,
print them, or upload them to your Facebook. I’d only ask no one puts
them on Flicr or other photo sites, I’ll be doing that myself for all
the best ones I took. If you want to print a picture, go to that picture
in the album, click on the picture. It will open in a new window, full
sized. Right click to save it. These are very big, 1-2mb. Most of the
close-ups of people are here.
