    Last Week I hit the opening day of Las Posadas (The Inn) at Olvera Street in Los Angeles. (Olvera Street is the historic "First Street" of Los Angeles.)

    Las Posadas is a Mexican reenactment of Joseph and Mary as they sought out shelter. Traditionally the reenactment is carried out all in song with participants and spectators all contributing to the reenactment. Posadas are carried out in Mexico for nine days from December 16 through December 24th.

    My snaps are here:

    I must say that the photo which I like best has not even been chosen for presentation here on TPF. It is Photo 4 of your slideshow (followed immediately by Photo 23). That girl (or is it two different ones?) is very pretty, too.

    Did you set your camera to ISO 3200 for most of the photos?

    Your last of the slideshow is one for our Darkside Gallery in the Photo Themes ;).

    Thanks LaFoto. I also liked #4, but it didn't say "Las Posadas" ... being limited to just a few for TPF ... she didn't make the cut. I shot at a combo of 1600 and 3200. Las Posadas was very challenging to shoot. Lighting was very poor, cramped quarters and very crowded.

    The last shot were trinkets in one of the shops, the trinkets celebrate "Day of the Day" ... a very interesting Mexican/Aztec holiday.

    Excellent work, Gary.

    I really like that first shot and the shot of the girl with her dreamy expression is really beautiful.
