Palm Sunday at the Annisquam Village Church is always a fun time. We hand out palm fonds to everyone before the service and the service revolves around Jesus and the story of Palm Sunday and leading to his crucifixion. This year I decided to shoot this event with the Leica M9 and the Leica 28mm Elmarit. The lead shot on my home page is my favorite image from the group.

To me this really tells a story. The design of the palm fonds really makes it for me. I wanted to do these in B&W which I am doing a lot of recently. In color it's just ok as the palms are a nice green yellow color. I added a slight vignette to this image to focus on the palms. The darkness on the left was already in the image so I did not have to do much.

This is another favorite of mine. I focused on the girl in the center as she was getting ready to walk down the isle as part of the service. The movement around her was great as it showed that in the midst of all the commotion this little girl was concentrating on what page the hymnal was supposed to be on. I enjoy doing these events on my own where I don't have to just record what is going on but can look for more interesting images. Click HERE to see the rest of the images.
