Capturing the good, the bad and the ugly of lesser-known Spain and now Southeast Asia

I think this individual looks more soulful and sad. Lovely picture, as all your images are
Hello (and welcome), Margaret! Thanks for your thoughts and compliments. Guess we’re 50/50 on sad/sinister now, although the both go together very well, I think…
What entitles one to a pointy hat?
No clue! Some of the churches use these flat hats, but most are pointy; the flat ones look very submissive next to the pointy!
I think the shape of headgear is associated with the status of the individual within the fraternity.
Sorry to disagree with you, Louis! In Zaragoza within the fraternity there’s no differences in headgear; for example look here around the 32-minute mark!
Compared to the other pictures of Semana Santa this one has a sinister feel about it, probably because black is the dominant colour and the eyes are also black. A great photo!
I agree; it does look somewhat sinister. But it was Semana Santa after all.
The eyes look sad to me, not sinister.
Thanks for all the feedback and thoughts; I guess you can go both ways, but they are coal black eyes and that’s always a bit sinister 🙂
Ha ha! I’d say that’s always a bit beautiful. 🙂
