The Last Journey

This is one of my favorite Mexico images (see it in my San Miguel de Allende gallery). I was out exploring with my camera early one morning in the Spanish colonial town of San Miguel de Allende when I spotted this elderly woman walking slowly beneath the colonnade that flanks San Miguel's main square. She reminded me of the last journey that we all must eventually take. I saw the closed door at the end of the graceful passageway as symbolizing the unknown, the mystery and eternal rest that lie beyond this fleeting life full of hardship and yet great beauty.
