We, my wife and I, stumbled upon this just as it was happening. Here a ceremony is being performed by a local shaman priestess. Not to worry, we had permission to shoot photos of it. Several of the pictures were put into a story and posted on the Everywhere Magazine website. One of the pictures was even published in the last issue before the magazine folded. Things are tough all over!
Thinking the show was over, I had already put my big camera away and we were leaving. I squeezed it off using a little pocket sized point and shoot as we left. What happened was we thought it was all over. But in reality it was just beginning. Not wanting to disturb them in their work or provoke their anger I snapped this and got the heck out of their way.
We got off the causeway and onto the sea wall where we could see more and I got out my big camera, zoomed in as best I could and snapped off a few more which are viewable in the links provided below.
