Our Lady of Gowanus


I heard drums and went to the window (accidentally ripping down the blinds that had come loose) and saw this procession from the local catholic church. I grabbed my camera, ran downstairs and caught up with the group as they made the bend down the block. I took a few shots of the Aztec-dressed dancers, the women holding roses and the Virgin, standing on a bed of flowers, held aloft by a dozen parishoners in a parade.
