Semana Santa in Tamarindo, Costa Rica

I dig Semana Santa, it is a blast. As a challenge I set up the camera with a high powered ringflash and a wide angle lens to do a bit of street photography in my back yard. The shots were taken fast, really fast. I didn't look through the viewfinder and the focus was locked with tape to make it something like a suckerpunch with a camera. None of these people knew that they were photographed, I just pulled out this giant camera and in a fraction of a second they were captured. I like seeing the natural state of people in a photograph with a wide angle lens, really close. Images are normally just so self aware these days... These are not.
