Day of the Dead

I love the idea of placing your loved ones photos on an alter, ofrenda, along with items that belonged to them as a reminder of their lives. Also as a path for them to be able to return to the living world, when the veil is the thinnest, October 31. I was able to visit San Antonio, which has a large Mexican culture/presence, and experience dia de la muerta festival!

It was such an amazing time. There was beautiful ofrendas, but I didn’t think it was appropriate to take photos as these are someone’s loved ones so I soaked it all up with my heart. However I did capture the ofrenda for Selena and Frida Kahlo. Beautiful is an understatement!
