The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

April 2009 Theme Day: Yellow

I

Tower of The Palacio de Cortés, residence of conquistador Hernán Cortés after he moved to the town of Cuernavaca from Mexico City. It was intended to be the seat of his encomienda.

Construction of the residence was started in 1526, for which the local population was employed. Cortés decided to build his residence on top of a hill, on the ruins of the lordship of Cuauhnahuac. This place had been used by the Aztecs to collect tribute, and therefore it was a symbol of Cortés' dominance over the conquered territory.
