Sunday Snapshot: Worshipper

On one of our latter days in Guanajuato, Susan and I entered the largest church nearest our hotel, known as the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Guanajuato (Basilica of Our Lady of Guanajuato; built in the 17th century). There were few churches we explored that weren’t breathtaking in one form or another, but in this case, while making my way back from the altar area, any interest in the architecture or decor diminished when I found this Guanajuatan intensely praying in the brilliant illumination of a shaft of sunlight through a window in the dome that pierced the dim interior (click to enlarge):


I hope the gentleman’s prayers were answered.

Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
