Photographically speaking, nothing in Puerto Vallarta has captured my attention like the religious iconography on the city buses. These virgens and Jesi (that’s plural for Jesus, right?) are as individual as they’re ubiquitous.

The photos have been hastily snapped, often using my phone. The quality’s not great, but these jittery, upside down, blurry images accurately depict the movement, spontaneity, and reflex of the moment of capture.

I’ll be continuously updating this album. Look for notifications on Twitter.

Guianos. Lead us.

Guianos. Lead us.

I took the wrong bus and ended up on a dirt road in an area I didn't recognize. Just as I was beginning to panic, I looked up.
