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.

This is a very moving homage to those persons who are dear to our hearts and who have departed before us. It's also a very meaningful way of letting those who are still with us know that they matter to us and that we cherish and love them for who they are. As always, your photographs are incredibly awesome, Many thanks for sharing.
