The Virgin of Bucerias

I spent the past week or so in Mexico, in the town of Bucerias. It’s near Puerto Vallarta, on the Bay of Banderas. While there, we were able to enjoy the town’s annual week-long fiesta. On the last night of the fiesta, a procession wends its way through town toward the cathedral, with music, dancers, and a float featuring the young Virgin Mary and the Christ child. This is all followed by a spectacular fireworks display in the town square.
My favorite image, above, is of the young girl playing the Virgin outside of the cathedral. Here are a couple more:

    Anonymous - Fritz: Thanks for sharing this poignant photo you inscribe as the YoungVirgin. This is wonderfully focused in poise, color and subject. It’s all in the eyes, I guess, inclusive of costume blooming with child. I see your wonderful photographic capabilities shining back through these glistening eyes. You have chosen a profession that is a merchant of dreams as you capture by camera the music of a muse. Best regards, Clay
