They really make a big feast day of it in Mexico. In Latvia they light candles on the graves.
Very different from what we are used to.I like it!
Foreign and interesting !
Wonderful JJ:)GreetingsElisa, in Argentina
Amazing how cemeteries are different and change from country to country and religions. Great shot. Diane
Great, colorful capture, JM! Enjoy your evening!Sylvia
Chiapas me enamoro, y Oaxaca Más.Gracias por tus fotos.
Some simple memorials, yet one stands out.
Nice capture. Although cemeteries and gravestones may look very different from place to place, the sentiments are the same. Love, loss, grief and the way that we try and cope with those feelings and the way we try and remember the dear departed...
very interesting decoration [ not sure if that is the right word ].. 1st time seeing this, honestly!
Very colourful decorations. I saw something similar in South America (except it was in the desert), lots of windmills and plastic flowers.
Such amazing, colourful decoration here! Many of the markings seem to be hand-written on the crosses! And the tall, raised grave seem to be like a central memorial!
that turquoise is fantastic!~laura
With wood and what looks like crepe paper, the culture of Chiapas must accept the emphemral quality of their tombstones.
Some of the decorations in the foreground, Jose, look like pompoms made from netting. Is there a particular saint day that is being celebrated here. I am trying to clue into what Arja commented. To me, this cemetery is very much for the working class members of Mexican society. The central memorial seems pretentious amongs such simplicity.Thanks for contributing to Taphophile Tragics again, Jose.
Well that is more colourful than we see here.
Very nice photos in your blog! I like it a lot!Have a nice evening! ; )
Cool cemetery. I think I need to get in on this series.
Characteristic, colorful and nice photo!
Wow!!! It's full of colors!I would like to visit Mexico some day. I love their culture and the Maya sites are one of my favorites places in the world.
