I was planning on returning to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico for Day of the Dead, but unfortunately a friend of mine who was going to meet me there had to cancel his travel plans and as a result I cancelled mine too.

I ended up going to Old Town San Diego to photograph the evening parade on November 2 and I made this group portrait.

The Day of the Dead is a Mexican holiday and is celebrated throughout Mexico. Family and friends get together to pray and remember their loved ones who have passed away. This is not a time of mourning, but rather it is a joyful celebration of life, food, friends and family.

The history of the Day of the Dead is a syncretism of Pre-Hispanic and Spanish customs. The celebration takes place on November 1–2, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints' Day (November 1) and All Souls' Day (November 2).

Thanks guys for all your views, comments and favs!

Happy Travels!
