Santuario de Guadalupe










I wonder if they surround the statue with flowers everyday or if this was a special day.

Santa Fe, New Mexico

In the last post I showed the inside and now here's the outside of The Santuario de Guadalupe.

  5. I think people put some flowers every day. "New" Mexico is already "complete" Mexico, adobe walls, mexican names and architecture..all is looking so much south american!Impressive..

  6. I guess coming from Europe 'old' is a relative term. The old adobe colours go well with the sky.

  7. It's strange and interesting how the statue dominates the church building and almost overlays it.

  8. Still on the road ? Or have you arrived in California now ?

    Beautiful carved sign there, someone must have spent quite a few hours making that... though it looks like a little maintenance is needed on the letters...

    Love your interior shot with the man praying there...

  9. That sunshine looks delcious. I can see why you chose the West. You're smart.
    Such interesting architecture-and totally different than quaint New England.
    You've offered very kind compliments on my reflections of late. Coming from you, I'm honored-you inspire. Happy 4th to you.

  10. beautiful, James! We visited there last October after the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque. In fact, we walked to a great restaurant from there...it sat right beside the railroad station! YUMMY!

  13. Hello, James.

    Artful Scenes are really grand.

    The delicacy of the life.
    The breathing of nature.
    I feel them.

    Thank you for showing splendid works.
    Have a good weekend.
