Yesterday, I had the privilege of attending a very special Yemanjá Festival in Barra Grande, on the island of Itaparica. This year, February 3rd fell during Carnival, so the festivities were significantly reduced. Even so, they were beautiful and deeply moving. Here are some of the photos I thought best captured the event (just click on the photo to see the slideshow).
