This is a snapshot, and only a snapshot, of little Nuestra Señora de la Soledad at the corner of Calle San Francisco and Real Salida á Querétaro. She is the least photographed of the classic old churches in town. That is a poignant thing for me because I am ever so fond of this old lady, shopworn as she is. The white sign next to her provides her history in three different languages. However, it is stuck now and does not rotate anymore. Consequently, one can read her history only in French.
There are good reasons for that lack of photographic attention. It is difficult to get an angle on her. To take a photo head on, one must step into the street. That is an extremely busy, blind intersection, which is the reason for the convex mirror.
One could get run over. Even if one ventures out there, one is shooting uphill, which presents its own problems.
And who, pray tell, is going to undertake the task of photoshopping that clutter amid which she sits? I know of only one person lunatic enough to try it. Still, I think the project would be beyond even him.
On the up side and for all these reasons, the lady is for the most part left in peace in her solitude.
