Catedral de Puebla

Originally posted by luchovas at Catedral de Puebla
On January 24th, 1557 the Viceroy Martín Enríquez (1562-80) designated Juan de Cigorondo, a neighbor of México for worker and Francisco Becerra was appointed architect. The design was submitted to the Dean and Cathedral Chapter on November 11th 1557.[2] The construction of the cathedral began in November 1575, but was interrupted in 1626. In 1634 Juan Gómez de Trasmonte modified the design and construction was restarted in 1640 when Bishop Juan de Palafox was ordered by the King Philip III to finish it. It was mostly completed eight years after. On April 18, 1649, the Cathedral was consecrated in honor of the Virgin Mary. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puebla_Cathedral

Lake Couer D'Alene

Sunset at Lake Couer D'Alene in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho. Easily one of the best/most relaxing places I've ever been to. Picture taken with a Nikon Coolpix L10 camera that I no longer use because I dropped it in a river. Woe is me. I really liked the smooth colors and textures this sunset brought.
