15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Supporting the Church

While travelling in Mendoza, Argentina I found the remains of a church that had been mostly destroyed in a huge earthquake in 1861. Other visitors told me that this architectural exo-skeleton was added in 2011 to stabilize the remains. I thought that the design fit what was left really well.
