I went into the Centro on Thursday evening to see and photograph the Altars in the churches but before I could go to see the altars I had to go to a meeting. When I came out at 7:15 there were already long lines to get into the churches. Since I am so short, if I had stood in line and gone into the church all I would have been able to photograph is someone's back. I was with a couple of friends so we walked around a bit then had dinner. Although it is difficult to get good images hand held at high ISOs, I love the color of things at night. Most of what I shot will not ever be seen but I like these two.
The minute I saw the incredible green curtains hanging in this doorway, I knew I had to shoot it. And who could possibly resist a beautiful sleeping baby with a rose turban. Dad was holding the baby so tenderly and the abuela was sitting by his side. I asked if it was okay to take a photograph. La abuela said okay. The light was a horrible orange color. It took a little adjustment in Lightroom to bring the image back to more neutral color.
