LAURIE ZUCKERMAN PHOTOGRAPHS SANCTUARIO DE CHIMAYO IN NEW MEXICO
Laurie Zuckerman visited the Sanctuario de Chimayo in Northern New Mexico, northeast of Santa Fe during Spring Break. They now have regulations against photographing inside the churches, but it is still okay to photography outside in the courtyard below the church. Here are two shots of the wooden crucifix that is so laden with rosaries, petitions, and christmas lights, it is almost unrecognizable as a Christ. The last shot is of one of the cyclone fences surrounding the courtyard. The entire fence is threaded with handmade wooden crosses. The Sanctuario is a world famous shrine. Not to be missed!! It is my personal favorite place in New Mexico.
