Oh Jesus!

Mexico, especially over the Easter period, features an impressive range of religious effigies. Many are completely over-the-top in their depiction of the crucifixion, the angels, the stages of the Cross, and so on. Here's an assortment of images shot while we traveled for four days in Mexico...

Just the roof of the church! Massive architectural features that are hard to shoot without flash or a tripod. Best technique is to place the camera on its back somewhere static and use the self-timer - and you get a sharp shot.  Pic by Graham Robinson
