The abstract nature of the image is so strong and attractive to me that I like it without even reading the caption. I'm not as concerned about the actual event (which is fascinating, btw) as I am pleased with the finished product.

"Sahumadoras" -- women who carry censers at the head of the procession -- lead the faithful toward Peru's most revered Catholic religious icon, "The Lord of the Miracles," or "Purple Christ," through central Lima on Thursday, Oct. 18. Thousands of Roman Catholics make the annual procession through the streets on that date to mark the anniversary of the earthquake back in the 1700s that destroyed Lima but left the "Purple Christ" painting intact.
