Shadow Shot Sunday 6 - Tepoztlan

Shadow shot sunday has rolled around again very rapidly, and this week's contribution was taken at an outdoor garden cafe in Tepoztlan, only an hour away from Mexico City. It is a scenic and picturesque Mexican pueblo, a perfect weekend retreat, but imbued supposedly with a special spiritual energy as it is located on a lay line. There have allegedly been many UFO sightings here, lots of New Age shops and businesses have sprung up, spa treatment hotels, and you can even have your aura photographed. But underneath it all, like so many places in this country, it fiercely remains a traditional and typical Mexican village, with its markets, festivals, locals hanging out in the plaza, street stalls and vendors. The pace of life is slow and the atmosphere is tranquil.
For more information and photos of Tepoztlan click here and here, and don't forget to visit hey harriet on Sunday for more showy shadow shots.

Beautiful patterns and so pretty in pink. Perfect! I bet the whole cafe is lovely. I've never heard of having your aura photographed. I'm trying to imagine what that would look like. Interesting!
