San Felipe del Agua Cemetery

 
  Candles flicker on hundreds of flower-filled graves, like an enormous light-filled garden on the night of Day of the Dead. People eat, drink, laugh, sing and play cards on the graves of their ancestors while children run between the tombstones, playing. There is music and the air smells like flowers. While you are photographing incredible images of relaxed, happy people, you may have to remind yourself that the celebration is about Death after all.
