*Dia de los Locos, is a day that encourages our madness to express itself in costumes, satire, folklore, and music. In the baroque town of San Miguel de Allende, in Mexico, this colorful festival—officially named San Antonio de Padua Festival —swoons the expressive soul to detach from normalcy and beguile them into celebrating the bizarre.

While walking the streets of Guanajuato, Mexico several years ago ,I noticed this graffiti stencil of a woman on the exterior wall of a building, and took this photograph. This is one of a series of photographs of textures found on buildings and streets in this city.
