Masked Chanting

Wide assembly of people dressed in white on a lawn facing a church building with masked speakers on a stage

Location: Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church or our Savior, 4401 Minnehaha Avenue

I had great intentions of shooting fall colors beginning at Minnehaha Falls.  En route, the sound of chanting and vision of a massed congregation in white stopped me in my tracks.  Changing leaves echo the colors of the Ethiopian flag as outdoor, and masked, worship is the order of the day.
