Another big WOW from me.
So carefully set up, yet his posture is not formal. Strange. Beautiful.

Actually, it's HER posture. Soldaderas were the women who went with the Mexican rebellion fighters. Some, like this woman, fought as soldiers themselves - others did all the camp work. All the pictures of them are amazing.
