Our Lady of Guadalupe

Our Lady of Guadalupe

This is a photograph I took of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church. Inside, I saw a beautiful corona around the statue of Mary.

According to Wikipedia, “The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, is known locally as La Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a Catholic place of worship that is located in Puerto Vallarta on the Pacific Coast of Mexico.”

I like the magnificence of the church and also the way the clouds highlight and bring attention to the church itself.

Twin Spires And Trolley Lines

This is a photo of the famous Catholic Church called Saints Paul and Peter Church in the North Beach area of San Francisco.  You get the spires as a quick image as I passed along one of the famous bus tours around the city.  I love the trolley lines finding them interesting how they intersect and work.

I remember being younger and enjoying the electrical buses that use to run up and down Corydon Avenue in Winnipeg.  They often lost their footing on the cable as they came around the bend and so I would enjoy sitting there watching them putting the cable back on the line.  I miss those electrical buses and meanwhile they were good for the environment but we replaced them in the name of technological advancement.

Thank you for liking, commenting and/or sharing.  Mary Mikawoz


Corona Madonna

Back in 2009, we visited Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  We visited the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe.  I took a few photos outside and a number inside.  I took a photo of the statue of Mary and then as I was leaving the church, I wanted to see what the pictures looked like and found that there was a Corona of Light around the head of the Madonna.  I was amazed.   I went back in to take more photos but could not create the same effect.

This corona was NOT photoshopped in at all.  It is as I was able to capture with my digital camera at that special moment in time.
