The Friday Photo #188 – Flickering candles for the Day of the Dead

Day of the Dead candles

The official Day of the Dead festivities here in Sayulita were a fairly raucous affair, with well-known bands, giant dancers (no, really) a party that ran until the small hours.

As darkness fell the day before, though, a more subdued celebration took place in the main plaza. Memorials to those who had died throughout the year had been erected throughout the day, and friends and relatives of the deceased lit candles in their memory.

They were simple yet poignant reminders that none of us will be here forever.

      Thanks Jimmy... I do seem to be a bit of a fan of shallow depth of field! ;-)

        As 'shallow' as it might sound. You just can't beat shallow depth of field. Haha oh dear! I think I've been sat at my laptop for far too long ;)
