Laurie Zuckerman's favorite Catholic saint if the Virgen of Guadalupe. We share the same birthday, so she feels personal to me, despite the fact I am neither Mexican or Catholic. I love taking photos of Guadalupe shrines in Mexico. Here are some of my favorite altar shots taken during the last visits to Oaxaca and Baja during the festivals for Guadalupe. Top picture is a church altar in Oaxaca; second picture down is from the festival at the Guadalupe church in Oaxaca; third picture down is from a church altar in Teotitlan del Valle, State of Oaxaca; fourth picture down is from a roadside shrine on a mountain road in Baja; the last picture is a basketweaver's home altar in Colonial Baja.
