Day of the Dead 2015 Gallery
This past Tuesday was the Day of the Dead, my fifth in Mexico, and as always it was two beautiful days of traditions and remembrance, during one of Mexico’s most famous, and most Mexican, of holidays.
I had an amazing time going from town to town visiting the cemeteries and taking pictures, both at day and at night. This year I really wanted to force myself out into the streets as many hours as possible. After all, the “Day” of the Dead actually lasts three days, and many of the best shots happen after dark.
As such it can take some personal motivation to go from town to town, wandering the streets with heavy camera gear and a tripod. However, this year I found myself at midnight the last (living) person in the Ajijic cemetery on November 1, the Day of the Innocents, when the graveyards are decorated by families to remember deceased children.
