Faces of Mexico

I’ve had fun photographing faces while I’m here in Mexico. From people to statues and amazing animals. Which one is your fave? Let me know in the comments below or better yet, Tweet your answer to your followers! 🙂

2. Juan sold me this obsidian rock pendant which has hues of iridescent gold in it when I turn it. He told me on a full moon if I put it in a glass of water it’d give me energy. That sounded more convincing when he said it!

3. This face is carved into the Temple of the Frescos at Tulum, Cancun

4. You’ll find the Virgin Mary everywhere! Inside churches and standing watch from the side of roads. Mexico has the 2nd highest number of Catholics behind Brazil.

6. When I saw my first iguana I stopped my guide talking and made him wait while I took pics. Now I realise they’re common after I have seen about 100!
