Dia De Los Muertos @ SF, 2014

After doing iPhone photography at dia de los muertos 2013, I decided to do a bit more serious photography in 2014 and lugged my entire equipment with 17-40, 24-105, 50mm and external flash to Mission District on 2nd November cover the event.  Dia de los muertos (day of the dead) is a Mexican festival where the family members pay homage to the dead in their family by making an altar, decorating with sugar skulls, candles, incense and marigold, things belonging to and liked by the dead ones, skull painting their own faces, music and prayers.  It's an event where poignancy and art shake their hands.  I spent the whole afternoon ambling around the Garfield square and taking part in the parade.  

The official website of the event is this: http://dayofthedeadsf.org/

Got a chance to click few pictures of my colleague Manoj's son, Aryav.  He was co-operative for pretty long enough to get few good clicks and here he is:
