Ron Garza sends in this powerful photo of Jon Durante‘s facial cuttings. Along with several other friends, they climbed to the top of an Aztec pyramid (a site no stranger to blood rituals) and performed a series of rituals and modifications (read and see more on their IAM pages)… They were escorted off the pyramids by the Federales, but the police were respectful and let them go after getting them away from the tourists.
Ron says that they were told this was the most blood spilled on that pyramid in the last five hundred years.
This photo just gives me the chills; and that was before I’d read the story… I think I’m going to leave it up as the top entry for a while (that’s why I posted lots today). It’s really one of my favorite photo sets I’ve received at BME of all time.
