Happy Palm Sunday (Egypt & H5)

I really wished I were a better photographer but well you'll have to bear with me
1- Traditional Cross for Palm Sunday

2-"Tell ye the daughter of Sion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee, meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass" (M't:21:5)

3- Selling Palms near the church

4- Palms for all ages

5- Bishop Muses giving the final blessings

Ah, humans are such strange animals.

I wonder where the idea of palm hats came from?

The Bishop has the latest in Sacramental Vessels a plastic pitcher.

At first glance I though he was overseeing a close quarters fight of some sort and it's a hands on blessing.

Fun shots.

Marion :)

I wished I could take a better photo of what the Bishop was doing.. but you see the croud, and I didn't want to lose my H5

Actually what happens is some water is kept in the Alter during the whole Mass prayers and at the end the bishop throws water on the croud as an alternative of putting his hand on each head. I don't know how this is done in the Catholic church. I guess they have something similar due to the numbers waiting for the pope's blessing. Let's hope somebody reads this and enlightens us But for us here in Egypt this has been done for the past 2000 years or so.
BTW I like your new look, from the other thread

Re: Marion :)

They walk around and sprinkle the water. Guess it all depends on the crowd. Bigger the crowd, bigger the container.

Re: Happy Palm Sunday (Egypt & H5)

In our catholic churches in TX, the priest dips the branch of a fern-type bush into the water, and uses it to sprinkle the water far and wide. --

So often on this forum

we learn interesting an thing or two of others way of life.

How dull if we just talked f: stops and ISOs. That seems to get worked in somewhere along the line.

I like STF just the way it is. Even with that jerk OTD sounding off now and then.
