In past posts I’ve mentioned the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico. Its also held in other Latin countries as well. However in Mexico it’s a really big thing. Even though it’s more well known roots are Catholic, it has been traced back to indigenous origins as well which is probably why these guys are so enthusiastic This is one of my fine art photos that are a bit alternative. I’ve hardly touched the photo since taking it so what you see is what I took in camera.
The longest continuously inhabited place in the USA is Taos Pueblo. Someone has been living there for 1000 years and about 150 still call it home. Located about one km from the pretty little town of Taos it’s also a world heritage site and a national heritage landmark. The day we were there the weather was perfect and great for photography. Search the net and you will see lots of photos of this fascinating place but this is my take. 1/800 @ f8 64mm ISO100
