October 27: Ofrendas

October 28, 2012 § Leave a comment

Having been spoiled by the lavish celebrations of the Day of the Dead in Tucson, we were pleased to find that the Tacoma Art Museum displays altars every October and holds a large community celebration of the Day of the Dead on the first weekend in November. We went to the museum today to peek at the altars without the crowds. As always, they were life affirming, sometimes sad, sometimes funny, always beautiful. As I get more knowledgeable about my camera, I am able to capture the spirit of things I photograph a little better. Here are the highlights of the photo shoot.
