This is a Mayan woman in Antigua, Guatemala, carrying her basket in the traditional way. In the background is the well-known Arch of Santa Catalina, which was once part of the Santa Catalina monastery built in the 17th century. Behind that, you can see the La Merced church

Absolutely outstanding, Mitch. Did she cooperate or were you ready? Either way, what an amazing image with all of the interesing architecture of place with amazing colors and dof. Of course, that woman steals the show. I love how the lines of her face seem to represent the story of her life.
