Municipal Cemetery on November the 2nd

4

On the day of the dead this place is full of life (well, kind of)

On November the 2nd, the day of the dead, this cemetery gets full of people coming to see their family members’ and friends’ graves, putting flowers and making altars it’s pretty impressive. What’s more impressive is the amount of people outside selling cempazuchil (a yellow flower used traditionally in this date), tins to put flowes in, masks, food, drinks, posters and flower arrangements.

It’s a slightly chaotic and very lomographic thing to see/shoot. If you’re around it’s definitely worth taking a look at it, it’s an amazing, spectacular tradition; it’s not a tourist attraction though so if you do come don’t be disrespectful.
