Day of the Dead!

I bought a lovely embroidered top from her. I asked if I could take her picture.
This photo is my very favorite of all!









A few more!
Still more to come!!!






I never understood the beauty of Day of the Dead until I visited Oaxaca, Mexico to celebrate the event. a magical time with such beauty and inspiration.
This is a photo I took during the celebration.
