LAURIE BETH ZUCKERMAN'S PHOTO OF SORROWFUL MADONNA AT RINCONADA CEMETERY NEAR TAOS, NEW MEXICO

Laurie Beth Zuckerman's photo of a Madonna in
Rinconada cemetery, Northern New Mexico near Taos

Laurie Beth Zuckerman's photo of the Madonna
and Jesus in the Rinconada cemetery 
Laurie Beth Zuckerman photographed this roadside shrine and cemetery near Taos several years ago. I have never seen such a majestic backdrop to a simple Camposanto cemetery.

This is my Day 7 entry for "A Virgin a Day." To witness all the other wonderful contributions by artists around the country, log onto Rebecca Brooks site: http://www.corazon.typepad.com/

Oh my...I have to make it out west before my life is over! The simplest materials make up the hugest impact! This photograph is so spiritual♥♥♥

When I see Mary all chippy and worn it touches my heart so much!! Beautiful as was the one yesterday.

The backdrop is very dramatic and makes the statues that much more reverent. Beautiful images. Wonderful capture.

Ah, she and Jesus are weathered but with hands still outstretched. Very beautiful.

Laurie, as many times as I have been to Taos in my life, I have never seen this cemetary. I will absolutely find it next time I return. Beautiful decay!
Bless you in your making,
Janie
