Happy Thanksgiving

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We were able to take it nice and easy and just enjoyed a day off. I had misplaced my camera for a few days but after a two hour camera hunt throughout the house michael finally found it! Also, I have been having some technical difficulties uploading pictures from my camera but I will be back in action soon. Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend!

Behind the Scenes at the Post Office

Some pictures I took recently at a post office. I loved the way the light was hitting all these mundane objects and the repetitiveness of the items symbolizing mail itself. I also loved the muted colors and trasparency of the bins.

Dia de Los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos is an amazing time to reflect upon and remember and cherish your loved ones, or admired ones after they have passed. It is a tradition meant to spend time with your loved ones back on earth. I think the meaning of the celebration is quite beautiful. Michael and I have attended Dia Los Muertos in The Mission in San Francisco and it was quite beautiful, moving, and elaborate. Not something I will soon forget. It was a wonderful time to meditate on life, to share with others the importance that their loved ones played in their lives, and to remember and honor your own. Here is a mini photo essay of some of my favorite altars and people at the procession. All of these altars are set up outdoors and never seize to amaze me at how much work people have put into them. It really is a reflection of the love that they have to share.











Happy Halloween!
