Architecture

When I was a kid I always dreamed of being an Architect. I always thought it was amazing to put a passion inside your work that everyone would be able to see it in a building or structure. I took this photo at my sister’s wedding while in Alton, Illinois. It is from inside of St. Mary’s Church. I looked up at the ceiling and saw this amazing piece of work and thought, I had to share.

Conclusion

I hope you enjoyed the photo and the small story. If you are interested in more of my Architecture work, be sure to click on the Architecture Tag below.

San Pedro Sulas – Honduras

San Pedro Sulas - Honduras

I took this photo back in 2006 when my pastor asked if I would go with him and some other church members to Central America.  We flew into San Pedro Sulas, Honduras and stayed there for a couple of days and then we traveled over to Guatemala.  I must say that it was a very interesting trip.  It actually gave me the a view of what the United States Citizens or Population take for granted.  We visited some churches in the area and actually hosted a church revival out in the streets a couple of nights.  Some moments seemed pretty intense when they told us the stories about revivals from the past.  They said the area is crawling with people that will kill you for no reason.  We actually encountered no hostile or violent experiences but there were some interesting characters that we came across.  I will try to put some more photos from Honduras and Guatemala soon but for now you can click on the Honduras and Guatemala categories to view them all.

Guanajuato

Photo of Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Guanajuato

Today starts the week of Mexico Photos week, which I mentioned last week that it was a little late but better late than never.  This week I plan to take you along on the trip that our family took when we last visited in  December of 2004.

Today, I am going to share more than one photo with you because Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico is probably one of the most beautiful places to see in Mexico.  It has so much history and amazing architecture.  The above photo is of the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato which is just one of the beautiful churches that Guanajuato has to offer.

The photo to the right is of another church just to the right of Teatro Juarez.  Not sure what it is called but if you know and would like to share with us, please feel free.

Guanajuato has so many different places and things to see.  It is full of history.  According to a custom publication of the Fresno Bee that was published on September 8, 2010, Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico is the 2nd top city next to Ciudad de Mexico.  There is so many important history figures that have roamed the streets.

I want to thank The Cultured Traveler for some of their information on the buildings in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico.  Visit their site to see all the information on the capital.

Stay tuned throughout the week to see more photos from Guanajuato, Mexico.  I am even going to share something that might frighten you!
