Random Photographs from Zacatecas, Mexico.

Main walkway inside the Santo Domingo Church.

The Altar of the Santo Domingo Church.

‘Dia de la Muertos’ display inside Government House.  As with most large houses in the center of the city, there is a courtyard in the center of the house, with arches and balconys.  The display is set up in this courtyard.

Mural on the stairs of the Government House.  I have no idea what it means, and no, it is not upside down.

Mother and child in ‘Arms Square’ in the city center.

This symbol is painted in many places throughout town.  I don’t know what the 2004 stands for, but the date 2010 is displayed all over the country.  Mexico’s 200th anniversary of independence and 100th anniversary of the Mexican Revolution is in the year 2010.

Alleyway looking East toward downtown, with walkway to La Bufa in the background.

There are many abandonded houses in the city, or should I say abandonded apartments.  As it is the middle of the city there are rows of houses all sharing similar walls and facades.  There will be a collection of new doors and then a broken locked one for an abandoned house.  Looking through the sometimes open windows can be seen sunlight, dirt floors and disintigrating mud walls.

    As always, I feel like I am there… only I think the pictures are probably better than the reality. I think that is one of the things you are really good at with the camera… it’s sort of “reality editing” or “essence capturing” and you aren’t trying to capture a whole lot, just enough to tell a story, and these all succeed.
