Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Mexico City

View from Tepayac Hill – the dome and bell towers (left foreground) are of the original Cathedral completed in 1709. The turquoise dome (background right) is of the new ultra-modern circular basilica which was completed in 1976 and can accommodate up to 50,000 people!



About FotoVentures Photo-Graphic Art

I have had a passion for photography since first using my Dad’s 35 mm camera as a teenager. The amazing digital innovations that have revolutionized the photographic arts in recent years have only served to heighten my passion for the art form. Modern digital photography, along with the use of the basic principles of color, composition, and design afford today’s photographers endless artistic expression. Each photograph is part of a process, the result of research, experimentation, persistence, accident, and luck. More recently in a search, for new markets for my photography, I have started writing short articles wrapping them around my photography for publication. You can see more of my work at

    I was there in 1974 and the new building was not there. Interesting to see it now.
