Guardian statues

These statues are located near the entrance of the Cementerio General, the most important cemetery in Santiago. It was founded in 1821 and has a lot of beautiful (and some strange) mausoleums that I'll show you in the next few days. It's a really "nice" place to visit and you can even take a night guided tour!

I wanted to thank you for joining Fanpop and adding your amazing photo blog to the site! It's a really nice addition and I hope that more people will find your photos through it. I wanted to personally welcome you, but also encourage you to make sure that on top of adding your photo blogs to the Daily Photo Spot, to make sure you add them to their relevant country or city spots as well. Michael has already set a great example!

Fanpop is all about having people who are passionate about different interests help to find the best content on the web for each of those topics and finding community with others who share those passions. By adding your brilliant photos to their country or city spots, you help others who love that country or city to find them. Here are just a few examples:

London
France
San Francisco
Shanghai
India

And if you don't see your favorite country or city represented, then create a new spot for it! And make sure you add other links that you find useful for that local country. And invite others who share your passion for those places to join as well! Fanpop is all about community building and collaboration, so it's not meant to be done alone...just like all you Daily Photo bloggers coming together! And I'm sure you'll find other interesting content on there as well. Let others know who you are and join a few spots and add some of your favorite local websites! Be careful though...it can be addictive!

Looking forward to seeing you all there. And keep on shooting those magnificent photos around the world! :)

These are particularly lovely statues and the way their heads are bowed seems so appropriate. The composition and light are very good. You must have used a fast lens? The depth of field seems good.
