The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Catedral Metropolitana / Metropolitan Cathedral


The "Catedral Metropolitana", is located beside the Zocalo or Main Square. It was the first cathedral in La Nueva España and is the oldest one in the Americas. It has a Baroque-style facade and 64-meter high Neoclassical-style towers which hold 18 bells.

Impresionante edificio. Es una foto muy interesante. Y sabes lo que me llama la atención? La falta de líneas en el pavimento, delimitando los carriles? (lanes) de la calle. La bandera mexicana luce hermosa en esta foto.

Hola, la falta de lineas es porque estaban cubiertas de agua, aun asi se alcanzan a ver un poco. Saludos y gracias por la visita.

Hi, I left a comment yesterday saying what a great shot, but the comment didn't appear for some reason. Anyway, I do love that Zocalo and that huge flag!

He tenido la suerte de visitar tu país y la cosa que mío principalmente impresionado no es mucho la bonita catedral o la enorme bandera de la plaza, pero ella la enorme cantidad de la gente que la frecuentó. ¡Verdaderamente impresionante!

I love this photo. Impressive building, subtle beams and circles of light with the coloured flag are very appealing.
