It's beautiful and your picture is great. I like the colors and the flowers in her dress.

You captured it well. I found that taking photos at Spanish Market was very difficult because of the crowds and the myriad objects surrounding anything one might want to photograph.

Craig said...

There is amazing detail on that wooden sculpture and your photo detailed in perfectly.

VP said...

I would certainly be one of the photographers trying to capture this beauty!

Doug Hickok said...

I can see why. It is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship. Nice photograph revealing the colorful costume.

It seems another version or Virgin Maria, the saint that protects thousands of latin american countries.

I like it, but I'm not sure what those words mean that describe this kind of art. You certainly were able to get a nice picture!

You learn something everyday in the blog world, I had no idea what a Bulto was Randy, excellent wooden sculpture.

Very pretty! Lovely shot Randy. Thank you for sharing it.

She's beautiful. It can be so challenging getting shots with so many people milling about.

Never seen anything like that before. As for the camera on my blog post yesterday, I got it for my wife on her birthday off of eBay. Sorry for having to answer you question here but was unable to reply through e-mailed comment as your settings are set for "no reply".

I'm not at all surprised that many photographers wanted to take a shot of this. :)

And quite rightly so. Thank you for queuing up to take a photo for us!

I love this. Wish i'd have been able to go to the market. Hope to go to Indian Market~ though I am quite certain I have to work the whole weekend, perhaps I can get there early before I go in.
