A small celebration of the the Day of the Dead, held in a local cemetery. Fun and poignant, people gather to remember loved ones, bring them presents, and build altars with the deceased’s favorite objects. Colorful marigolds brighten everything. Skulls and bones, face painting, dancing, costumes, ceremonies.
I keep returning to this picture, which I took in early January 2014. There really were 3 kids, the third is behind the girl and barely visible. I love the mystery of the black hole – what is in there? What adventure – or misadventure – awaits?
